NSF; 
I dont see 1922 being replaced. It has been here since the beginning, but I could be wrong, maybe it will get replaced.

Google is your friend:http://midamericacarinc.com/

but yes, they do pretty much everything. They're the go-to for many railroads for rebuilds and wreck repairs. For example, here's a before/after of BNSF 997, involved in a head on collision and repaired at Mid America:

To you RR guys is Mid America an engine rebuilder or just a paint shop which is what comes across in the pictures of this loco?  I'd ask Jake but he is way too busy with other issues.

I would prefer 1922 to get repainted, and 2009 to stay red.

Hopefully 1922 goes to the paint shop before 2009.

I think 2009 would look better in Daylight but they might as well go with the bloody nose theme if they're going to repaint it.

So when do we think 2009 will get the bloody noose paint job?

Comment by Bob Cleek on April 30, 2016 at 3:03pm

That red paint should be just fine if it's a two-part polyurethane like DuPont's Emron series or the equivalent.  The same goes for the gray.  I have to say that this livery has grown on me.  When I first saw it on the other engine, I thought it was sort of uninspired and had wished they'd revived the "Black Widow" livery or something similar (and I realize that one would probably have cost more,) but I'm liking this "Bloody Nose" livery more and more as time goes on.

Well that little bit of text below the number can settles that debate, it's coming to the north bay
