Thanks for "the rest of the story" certainly unique!
Great looking model!
I have submitted a mini-review of the Athearn RS-3 (latest run) to Chris Pey for publication in the Bulletin. If there is interest, I could post a slightly different version on my web site this weekend...let me know.
This is not a "Tech Committee" review, it is my own opinion as a New Haven Modeler, and I do not know if that particular submission will make the Bulletin nor do I know the publication schedule for the Bulletin although usually one comes out shortly after Reunion.
For those interested in that mucked up paint job on RS-3 521, here it is. The first slide I have is an Norton D. Clark image taken at Boston, MA, dated 1/12/1969. Clearly seen is the red/orange cab & evidence of some black paint! The other slide that shows more black paint on the opposite end is also a Norton D. Clark taken at Framingham, MA on 11/15/1964.NHRHTA1 wrote: All the research shows that the early phase DERS-2c units only 521 and 535 had this. Unit 521 IS NOT a good choice for a load of reasons I can not list here as it was unique. So you are stuck with 535 which was later selected for rebuilding.
Anyway here is your photo by J W Swanberg.
