I have noticed in that NREX and LLPX both have Yellow dip locomotives. Are LLPX and NREX doing something similar to what HLCX is doing, painting its units under a contract with a railroad?

Nope, but photos 22116 and 95118 look like someone went a little crazy with the yellow... :P

Well, there are two easy modeling projects, get a GE 6-axle, or a GP-38, add minimal detail bits and then spray all but the trucks (except the EMD unit, spray those), and presto, leased units!

Although I'll agree, that's a bit much on the yellow.

Terry,
The reason they are being painted CSX blue are they are being leased to CSX so Helm is paying CSX to paint them.
