    Good day all.

    Just an FYI I too am not getting answers from Athearn as weather they
    are doing BN or MRL.

    I am a custom painter from the Seattle area and am going to be painting
    ALOT of these in MRL and BN if anyone is interested.

    I think the MRL colors on that unit will look great - as the real diesel does. I read once that Athearn releases new models in the order they were first delivered to the various railroads. (I don't know that this is true...just read it once on another site recently.) So does that mean that on the second production run they'll make units in the MRL colors? I dunno, but I bet a custom painted F45 would look pretty great compared to a "production run" quality Athearn.
