The Portland & Western (P & W) GP40-2 locomotive was commissioned by Tru-Color Paint to demonstrate the Gennesee & Wyoming (G & W) Yellow and Orange. The P & W is a shortline owned by the G & W Company. Note that custom decals were also manufactured for this project. Gennesee & Wyoming owns many shortlines throughout the U.S. and nearly all of them are painted in this corporate orange & yellow scheme.

All of the Portland & Western locomotives were named for the cities it served. The loco shown is the Wilsonville.

Tru-Color Paint TCP-114 and TCP-115 was used for this (and another we had done as well) locomotive. These are in stock in 1 and 2 oz. bottles.

Thanks for posting these!

What strikes me is how crisp the detail remains under these paints. They appear to mask particularly well, too.

The details are sharp since the modeler does need to apply a heavy coat of paint to get an opaque finish with Tru-Color Paint. All of our paints have a substantial finely ground pigment load that lets you get a superb appearance with just 1 coat of paint.

Same would apply to any model being painted - autos, railroad, armor, ships or planes. If the rivets can be seen, our paint will not obscure them !
