Thinking about finishing my aluminum E44. I just shot it with black, and am going to tackle handrails and Faiveley pantographs maybe tonight.
Rumors are that very knowledgeable E44 fans are lurking close by - so I am looking for fragments of advice. They tell me these were all Brunswick green - they look positively black in all the color photos I have seen. So, DGLE as a top coat after a quick sanding job? Are 1960s Dulux decals still available?
I am not much for modern rolling stock with spinning bearing caps, but willing to make an exception here - do I have to cast my own, or are there suitable commercial caps for the driver axles?
Yes, it runs - quite well, actually, with six CLW transmissions and two 8224 Pittmans. Thanks for any help . . .
