PC: Re: interesting errata

There are no plastic C425's than Atlas.   TYCO made the C430.  When TYCO was
taken over by Mattel several years ago they did not revive the trains. TYCO
also made a shortened GG-1, E7, a nice hi-nose SD24 before Mattel took them
over. There was also a PC Green GP20 in addition to the F7's.

Model Power offers a C430 similar to TYCO's

As for MGA RF-16's, none were ever repainted, but simply relettered NYC
units. I doubt repaints would have the white stripe on the nose
