Don’t miss the full article in the June 2019 Model Railroader. Enjoy this gallery of bonus trackside photos of the A&S, including some of Howard’s custom-painted and detailed locomotives and rolling stock. All photos by Howard Gallagher
During the 1950s, railroads started eliminating elaborate, multi-color paint schemes on diesels in favor of simplified one-color schemes as a cost-saving measure. The Atlantic & Southern was no different and introduced a simplified scheme in 1957. Howard based the lime-green simplified scheme on the livery worn by Illinois Terminal Ry. diesels. He also kitbashed the cabless B-unit in the photo from a damaged hood unit.

  1. Howard, Fantastic details!! Love the A&S paint schemes. Also really like the strapping details on the flat car loads.
