> HI Everyone: Please go to the following link:
> The new switcher that is coming out is represented in two slightly different schemes here- The 100 has more yellow trim than the 1000. What gives and which one would a person order? I am modeling "transition era" D&RGW, about 1959.

It depends on when you are modelling. The unit was delivered in January 1941 as number 7000 with Dulux Gold lettering and striping and with short exhaust stacks. It was renumbered to 100 in September 1941. The unit was repainted (date unknown) using the then current Duco Imitation Gold for the lettering and striping, hence the color difference. At some point the unit also got stack extensions. Until July 1953 the unit was equipped with a trolly pole for activating crossing signals when operating on Denver & Intermountain trackage, and in 1966 handrails were added along the outside edge of the deck. So as you can see, what the unit looked like very much depends on what era you want to model it for.
