NOTE: The loco itself, minus the tender, could not be repainted (except the number boards) because the textures on it are mirrored to both sides, which would have made any text reversed on one side of the locomotive

The Canadian National Railway’s Mikados were very unique for railfanners of the time, because even up until their demise in 1960, you could easily tell which ones belonged to the Canadian Northern Railway and the Grand Trunk Railway prior to CN’s creation. Canadian National, in a cost-saving effort, simply painted over the old predecessor railways’ logos with their own name. In the case of the Canadian Northern, CN simply painted "National" over "Northern", and in the case of the Grand Trunk, the black-and-white "Tilted Wafer" logo was painted over in red and white, bearing the name "Canadian National" instead.
Both of those liveries are included in this pack, with the ex-Canadian Northern being introduced in 1919 to reflect it being purchased by the Canadian Government upon its bankruptcy in 1918. The ex-Grand Trunk livery is introduced in 1923, when it went bankrupt and was absorbed into the then-new Canadian National Railway.
