Good choice there! Hey, if you want an interesting current paint job for it, try out something like the pictures I posted on this forum!

Me too , but I don't like long nose

There are UP SD40-2 #3571 with old Scheme
and D&RGW SD40T-2 also .
The UP unit has a little damage and costs $25 .

Both are Atheran dummy trains .

I suppose your choice on what engine to buy all depends on what years you would like to model with your railroad. The D&RGW unit is from the 1970's up to around 2004, whereas the Union Pacific engine would fit in during the late 60s all the way to the 1980s.
Of course, you could always model the year 2006, buy the D&RGW unit, and have a huge group of miniature rail fans waiting trackside for it!

I like the last scheme since I am new to American railroad

I want to do something on my model ,
but I do not have any materials to do it .

Although it just cost $30 ,
it is quite expensive for me
