I was in Caboose Hobbies yesterday and looked over their new selections.
Among them was a new Athearn model, a CB&Q SW1000 painted in the blackbird
scheme.   Since the SW1000 was not introduced until 1966, and I understand
that the Chinese Red scheme came into existence in 1958, would this be an
inaccurate paint scheme for this model?  I can't recall seeing an SW1000
here in Denver on the Q, although the D&RGW had several of them in the late
1960s, but wouldn't it be painted Chinese Red?   How late was the blackbird
scheme used on Q diesels?   I do recall seeing GP20s and GP30s in Chinese
Red, but the blackbird scheme I recall and have photos of were all NW2s,
SW1200s, GP7/9s, and SD7/9s.
