Why do we even care to waste bandwidth on this non-New Haven garbage??rsullivan wrote: Thanks Mr. Flatcar99 for this tribute to the New Haven EP-5s. I see it is numbered for the GFN. Is that possibly the Grand Funk Network? I see that Fleischmann avoided the controversy of modelling the third rail pickup shoes in either the raised or lowered position by just not including them on the trucks. Prior to Rapido announcing their production of the EP-5, I was seriously comparing the Marklin NS EETC Class 1200 Electric Locomotive, MFX+ w/Sound for a kitbash donor locomotive. It would require so many modifications, that I decided that scratch building one would be easier, take less time, and be more cost effective.

Remember the REVELL HO engine house kit that showed a New Haven cab unit in front of it?
I had to have one after all it showed a New Haven engine so this building had to be correct for the New Haven right? And then there was the old ATHERN boxes with the Fogg NH RS-2s as the box art, but what was in the box was not New Haven
