|Current Price is $1079.95
|The E8 and E9 were the face of passenger trains for decades. Solid and reliable, these E's even found their way into freight service on many roads. Some of the best-known railroad liveries graced these models and never looked better. But beyond lightning stripes and warbonnets, the E's wore plenty of more unique yet equally interesting paint schemes as well. This latest release celebrates just a few of those! Think Southern or Southern Pacific and immediately green and Daylight colors come to mind. But the Southern's "tuxedo" black and white paint was no slouch. And Espee's gray and scarlet graced these units for far more years than orange and red. Amtrak's red-nosed E's ushered in a new look as passenger service was re-imagined in the 1970s. New York Central's early paint schemes were striking - but costly. They experimented with a splash of "Century Green" paint on a pair of E8s (and 1 E7B) i n 1960 before deciding upon dark gray. Ultimately the Central felt the green was more suited for boxcars - but we think it looks just fine on the E's! Offered in 5 different paint schemes including holiday colors!
