I am courious. I am trying to paint an atlas n scale trainmaster in a version for the southern railway. My questions are: Was the trainmaster ever painted in the black and imitation alum scheme? and if it was it the gold colored stripe or the more yellowish colored striping like on the eariler green schemes? Thanks in advance i had to stop painting half way thru to get this answer. Joel Shelton

Joel--the Train Masters were delivered in the green and imitation aluminum scheme with yellow pin stripes and lettering. They were later repainted into the black and imitation aluminum scheme with metallic gold lettering and stripes. Keep in mind that the Southern Train Masters were all Phase II units with the pilot walkways lowered to match that of other diesels. It was my impression that Atlas was going to release that body style--Larry
