Athearn from a marketing stand point picked the best paint scheme possible
as is covers the longer period/years than the blue era. Not all modelers are
N&W fans as we are, so it covers the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I would like to also
had the blue scheme though.

I agree I would like a blue one.  I believe Athearn is sticking to the NS
end as the HO GP49's arrived before the GP39X's.  Both were announced at the
same time and we know in the real world delivery was the other way around.

I will follow on my schedule and build mine from a Kato.
