    So this kind of a spin off from my SAL Tampa to Baldwin FL route idea but here it is. So the PRR Baldwin Centipede is in the game so, what if the SAL version is created? The SAL was the other big buyer of the Centipedes, as it purchased 14. The loco would be in Citrus Freight Scheme (4500), which was created specifically for the unit, as it was originally intended to be a “duel service” locomotive, and Seaboard Standard Scheme (4500 - 4513). The reason for 4500 to have to schemes is because after 4500’s career in fast passenger service didn’t work out, Seaboard removed the steam generator and converted the water tanks to fuel, and then subsequently repainted it into the standard freight scheme. 4500 was a Phase I unit, while the rest of them (4501 - 4513) were all Phase II units. centipedes differed a littleness bit from PRR centipedes. For example, Seaboard centipedes were geared for 93 MPH, while Pennsy centipedes were geared for only 60 MPH. Another difference was that Pennsy centipedes were permanently coupled back-to-back, while Seaboard centipedes could operate by themselves. The Centipede would have some scenarios for the Baldwin to Tampa FL route, if it is made. Also, because of the time period these locomotives were delivered in, the herald on the nose would say "RAILWAY" instead of "RAILROAD" as Seaboard rebranded in 1946 from "RAILWAY" to "RAILROAD", due to them coming out of receivership. Thanks for looking. [​IMG] The Citrus Freight Scheme. (4500 was the only centipede in this scheme, and was repainted in 1949. The FT's were in this scheme for a while until the Seaboard Standard scheme came out.)

    EDIT: This locomotive could also be used as a separate add-on, but could also work as a livery add-on.
