She's looking great. Nice job, guys. Keep up the great work.

Looking good! As a BN fan & BN modeler, I am fond of the green & white "hockey stick" scheme. Too bad you can't find a couple of green & white cars for her to pull. I guess the train on my layout will have to suffice. Keep up the good work!

The buffed out paint looks great now that the patch outlines are gone and the green shines. I am also satisfied with the explanation about the CB&Q modifications and BN-3. When the MARC engines showed up I was thinking there would not be a lot of interest in them, I heard they had a lot of parts missing or were brought in for parts only, but I think their fates have turned out alright. Whats the plan for the stripes- is that tape stuff still obtainable in correct specifications?

Hello, Is this BN unit being restored to BN or CB&Q?

It's too bad it isn't being restored in CB&Q colors. I guess I'll settle for the one in St. Louis being the only accurate CB&Q E-9A.

Matt, if you've been following the articles on 9908 from the beginning, you would've read "Sometime in the future, it will be restored back to CB&Q 9976 with stainless steel side panels and will be used as backup power for the Nebraska Zephyr."

Any chance the 9908 will have its 4 port side windows replaced that BN removed when the E9 was rebuilt for commuter service? Also its missing mars light replaced?
