All you need is a white decal script Rexall on the side and a free coupon for Trojans clipped to the tender.

And that's enough of that!

Ah yes, one of Williams "Variations On A Class J."  In addition to the N&W prototype, numbered for some inexplicable reason "746,"  Williams also did the locomotive in B&O "Royal Blue," CNR green, a New Haven scheme, even a PRR version.  All great looking O gauge locomotives, but discontinued now.  

OK, Williams numbered their N&W Class J 746 to match the Lionel version, but it still doesn't make sense, at least to me.   Hmm

However, anticipating Overmod's suggestion, back in 2017 Mike's Train House DID put out a Rexall Train!  And here it is...

Anyone besides me remember Rexall?

Sure.  You can get Rexall products at Dollar General.

We have Rexall drug stores up here, though the current company is unrelated to the historic American brand.  Until 2016 they were owned by Daryl Katz, who also owns the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, and the arena (originally the Northlands Coliseum) was appropriately named Rexall Place.  The team has since moved to a new venue.
