Thanks for "the rest of the story" certainly unique!
Jim,
Great looking model!
Modelers,
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.
Regards,
Peter

Anyway here is your photo by J W Swanberg.
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. a004.jpg

My additional research came up with this photo of RS-3 534 in the McGinnis scheme as well. Photo by William Raia, no info included. Hope this helps your modeling efforts

John E.

If you don't want to do the 534 the last series (537-561) had 11 units repainted with the Black hoods & r/o cabs.
