        I imagine, that will depend on quantity of sales?

              I assume they did their research to get the colors correct. I have never seen an original color photo of those 3 engines but do have black and whites. Note the circle with the lazy "S" does not have the letters "tudebaker" which I thought a bit odd but my original images confirm that is the way it was. I have images of Studebaker locomotives going back to the 1890's. Note in the 3rd image below car bodies stacked in cars nose first
              , headed for either Hamilton or the L.A. plant. The1st photo one of my favorite Studebaker related RR images from c.1925.

                  I wholeheartedly agree, Chris! I always look forward to Richard's comment on such things because he backs them up with great documentation.
