Duncan do you have some more photos of your locomotive? We would like to see it from some different angles if possible as it is quite attractive. Personally I very much like the color from what we see in these images you've posted.  Thanks and happy New Year to you sir!

Curious as to why this one would be considered a 'fantasy' scheme?



The way is was pictured and advertised in the catalog, it was supposed to be much darker than what was actually produced, look at the how it was depicted in the catalog.

The fantasy Dreyfuss 5454 is a dead match for the Lionel Vision line sound baggage car issued 2918. I think Lionel will issue the rest of the passenger cars next year. They have the palat already. The other baggage car does not have a strip but matches the grey. This is also a 2918 NYC car.  I am using MTH for the rest of my consist. They are darker but work for me right now. If you consult any books on the few years the Drefuss were run as they aged the consists became more mismatched as need overcame aesthetics. To my knowledge there are no color images of this train so we do the best we can.

It's supposed to be the later 20th Century scheme, used after the locomotives had lost their streamlining and hence were never painted to match in the real world, per the Lionel catalog.

used after the locomotives had lost their streamlining and hence were never painted to match in the real world.

After they lost their streamlining, the color was black. They were already black underneath the streamlining,….
