Well, since NYY-Detroit was rained out I decided to research engine numbers. Js, Ys, As, even RS3s and 11s all check out. Then I pulled out a Proto 2000 SW8/900 #3122 which I bought some time ago. Nothing in the bible ("Giant of Steam") and nothing in a couple of other motive power books. So good old google revealed these EMD locos were owned by Conrail, SP, EL and LV (not to mention Korea!). Not a NW in sight.

Shame on me for not checking first, but on the Walthers box it's clearly stated "only authentic roads and road numbers will be produced" - must have slipped through the system!

Any of the above make sense?
