    I've started work on an F7 'B' unit to go with my CRR 'A' unit. I found a photo online of a 'B' unit in a slightly different livery to what the 'A' units seem to have been in. Rather than just the yellow stripe along the bottom this 'B' unit has two thin yellow stripes one along the bottom of the body and the other along the bottom edge of the radiator grille at the top of the bodyside. It has the Clinchfield wording on the grilles themselves so not sure how that will look but also has CRR lower down on the bodyside. I'm going to see if I can do the Clinchfield wording on the grilles but if not I'll just stick with the CRR on the bodyside.

    The photo also makes the paint look like it is a chocolate brown rather than a black but i'm wondering if this is just discolouration from the old photo?

    Anyway..... Currently has the stripes and some of the lettering in place. IMG_3893.JPG TSW2_David_1618485652_00.jpg TSW2_David_1618485669_00.jpg

    What you found was CRR 869, an F7B that was used for special passenger trains on the railroad, the only F7B that got Black paint was CRR 861, however, I cannot find any photos of it online. Most didn't get the black paint because they were off the roster by the early 70s, traded in to EMD for newer power.

    Cheers guys...... Oh well at least I didn’t get too far with it. ;)

    I’ll keep looking for an image of CRR 861. :)

    **EDIT**

    I’ve managed to find a picture of what I’m assuming must be 861........

    Having discovered thanks to info from you guys on here yesterday that the CRR ‘B’ unit I had started to skin was one of the two used with steam locomotives rather than one in the standard black livery I changed the reskin I had started to be as it should be and so here's my interpretation of CRR F7B 861 the only one to receive the CRR black livery.... The numbers have had to be left as the default font due to lack of layers and again like the ‘A’ unit the lettering takes up most of the layers so this means the ‘B’ unit has only five layers of weathering.

    I wouldn't have minded trying to do the SD40 in the earlier grey & yellow but the layers required to make a good job of the lettering would leave nothing for the more complex yellow/grey livery or any weathering at all so I feel that'll have to wait till such a time as the 300 limit is raised.

    As soon as I got the Clinchfield Railroad I made a Santa Fe, New York Central, and Southern Pacific Black Widow for the EMD F-7 A/B units and the caboose.

    Well, it's a start. This livery is surprisingly difficult - or at least, in the absence of font support getting the lettering right is. And only a very few layers left for road numbers and proper weathering:

    [​IMG]

    "Clinchfield" is 70-odd layers. I have no idea how do do that four times on the SD40 and do anything else....

    You could always do an extremely dirty model, which the lettering on the side is covered in all that soot and coal dust.

    This photo is a good example, though someone wiped the nose logo a bit.

    I really want to get an update to this. The fact that we are able to make such crazy stuff with such little is amazing.

    If this was like Forza....all I could say from personal experience is that it would allow me the options to actually make complex designs. There are so many things I can't make in this game.

    Aussie trains on the way.......and I don't think they are ones that anyone will think of!

    I'm going to go ahead and call this one done:

    [​IMG]

    Still not happy with the painted road number, because I simply could not find a way within LD to reproduce that 8. But it's pretty small; and I partially made up for it and the blanked-out number boards by faking CRR's illuminated nose number.

    Didn't really do any spot weathering or streaking, since DTG gave this one to us pre-weathered, and I didn't have layer headroom for good rust effects. I picked up what does seem to be characteristic of well-used F7s and late-model F3s: the louvers on the upper sides were stainless steel, but would collect lots of soot and grime-- at least where there were actual vents behind them. The places where they were "dummies" remained relatively clean, always in the same pattern.

    _____________________________________________
    If you want to be a little different, I discovered that CRR's 820-series F7s, when in black, carried the "Clinchfield" high, just below the headlight.

    i didn’t even manage to have enough layers left after the Clinchfield lettering to do a road number on the front. :(

    Ha! Mastered the 8!
    Also tweaked the N, which wasn't quite right

    Okay, now THIS is some news- the designer of the CRR SD40 has taken some steps to avert the number board issue: those number boards are paintable, you can make them match the cab numbers, even make the background yellow for Clinchfield.

    It is not a perfect solution, because it only works ideally in daytime. Turning on the lights effectively puts a "light" panel in front of whatever you've painted there, so your road numbers are very dim and hard to see. But it's definitely a step in the right direction!

    If you muck about with the projection settings then you can make it only show up on certain levels of the loco
