No black models will be produced at this time.  They were delivered in 1957
in the black F1 scheme .(Deluxe gold lettering in the style that was used
on N&W steam locomotives with no herolds on the noses or above the numbers
on the cab sides below the windows).  Many GP9's spent part of their lives
in Peveler Blue, F4 scheme.  My preference would have been for F2 or F3
painted GP9's.  With the RS11's I tried to convince Rapido to produce
undecorated black models but they didn't understand the value and didn't
produce them.   Undecorated, painted black models would serve well to decal
your model into any of the black schemes that may have been on the
particular locomotive.  Anyway at least someone finally is doing an N&W
freight GP9.  I'll continue to try and convince model manufacturers that
where appropriate we would have a market for undecorated, black N&W
locomotive models. And yes please excuse my horrid typing and spelling on
this morning's note!
