Thanks for clarifying E-Man. Good to know.Choo Choo was notorious for doing things differently from day to day. Almost nothing would surprise me. Having that in mind, it wouldn’t shock me if they had pink polyurethane noses. But I did have a brand new NOS nose a few years back, and it was flat black.
I suspected as much. My only experience with yellow has been this replacement nose. It's NOS, with all the trimmings that are also NOS. (Almost nabbed the one you had years ago) Whatever color urethane we could possibly find, a little sealer and primer will do.
