My son convinced Mr. Muffin to do a custom run of one of the two GP20s that N&W ended up with.  He received it this week.  The positives were the paint and general details were accurate to the photos of the original.  Paint is crisp.  There are more details applied than the MTH Railking version, even though there were some missed opportunities for additional improvements to the details.  Negative was the horn fell off with just a light touch.  Minor repair.  Overall my son is happy with his first successful custom run request.

Mine came yesterday.  I'm busy getting ready for a trip so I don't have as much time to dedicate to getting it going as I want.  I realize I better check it promptly, so I unboxed it just now.  I paid attention to @jstraw124's comment about parts falling off, so I paid close attention to everything on it.  Luckily, no issues.  It looks good.  I'll try to run it tomorrow.

I believe they had a high hood version as well.

I did get a chance to run my Cotton Belt GP20.  This is the first Legacy locomotive I've bought, and I must say I'm impressed with the detailing and the handling.  I have a Cab1-L and Base1-L to run it, and everything works great IMHO.  The horn sounds great to me, and while the crewtalk stuff seems realistic, that's something I don't care for so I only had it on once.  What impresses me the most is the slow speed operation of it, no hesitation at all, it just moves slowly.  I use that when pulling it into the TMCC Culvert Loader and Culvert Unloader stations, which are uber cool.
