BNSF H1 & Golden 1050 Dash 8-40CW

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) H1 livery for the C40-8W (also called the 'Dash 8-40CW' by other companies) with both the classic Northern Pacific dark green lettering and the H2 gold lettering on BNSF #1050. I figured I would include #1050 because I like these specialty liveries companies produce when trying to find the right balance for their new paint schemes, and also because I know people like locomotives with the numbers pre-included in TSW2 so I also created it to include the #1050 numbers on it for those who like them as this is the only locomotive painted that way. Aside from that, the standard, numberless H1 livery is as true to real life as I could manage, they use the Unlimited Livery Editor Layers mod for TSW2 so be certain it's installed before editing anything; and as always any feedback is more than appreciated : )


Following the 1995 Burlington Northern and Santa Fe merger resaulting in the very aptly named Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway, Burlington Northern (BN) and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (ATSF) Railway had orders for locomotives that were still being created, painted, and delivered during and after the merger. As a temporary solution, The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway kept the paint they had on already and added a BNSF marker to them, but required a permanent livery. The first design was the 'Executive' scheme designed by combining the two main colors of BN and ATSF however company employees were given the choice to vote on a new livery and Heritage I (H1) was chosen, though CEO Robert Kerbs believed the company was large enough for two liveries, so the H1 and Warbonnet livereis worked together side by side until H2 was created.

Hey Alpha. For some weird reason I can't get my Creators Club working, tried everything online to get it to work but it refuses lol. So unfortunately this is the only place I can post my stuff :( [I think it's because I use mods in my game to make these liveries, not sure though]

Shouldn't be a mod issue.... I use the unlimited layers mod and logo pack mod and have uploaded liveries to CC without any issues.

All it should need is you to be signed in to Dovetail Live and have the images you are going to use to display the liveries saved as railfan shots.
