I just recently got into BN... i think the GP50's paint scheme is awesome!!! So much better than the standard BN paint scheme. i'd like to get a few in HO scale. Aside from the Athearn one, does anyone else make a BN Geep50? or is anyone good at custom painting this paint scheme?

I believe that Athearn is the only model manufacturer of the GP50, beside a possible brass run. Some years ago, Model Railroader had an article about building one of the units with the extended cabs. These were an experiment in having a full crew in the cab, so the caboose could be eliminated.
