I have a model of this apparantly limited-run engine. Any idea where I can find some good informaiton on the prototype ON-LINE?

Look at the several Green Bay and Western modeler/railfan sites. They have good pics of the several units operated by GBW.

C425, there was not C426.

Which railroad(s) are you interested in?

Nigel:

It is decorated in Rock Island, but the Rock never owned any C424 or C426 according to a couple of roster's I'm looking at. I would be interested in learning what companies did purchase them. The back cover of this months MR shows two on New England Rail colors, and ppmmtj has just indicated that Green Bay and Western is another possibility.

Thanks.
