It was orange when we got it, so I figured it was easier to match. It actually should have been red, following our color scheme. For the most part, Red is equipment with a motor, yellow has no motor.

Then orange is the proper color.  Red - it has an engine,  Yellow - no engine for movement,  thus -  Red + Yellow = Orange     Enuf Said...….

It is all set, on the tracks, ready to go. There are a couple of ties in the yard we could try it on, but that will be up to the track department. Ground work will be starting soon.
