'Armed Forces'
In 2019, CSX partnered with Operation Gratitude, Blue Star Families, Operation Homefront, Wounded Warrior Project, and First Responders Children’s Foundation as part of their Pride In Service™ initiative. To honor our heroes, CSX painted three unique “Spirit” locomotives: Armed Forces, First Responders, and Law Enforcement. We worked closely with CSX to accurately reproduce these special locomotives in HO Scale. A portion of the model proceeds will benefit each of these exceptional non-profit organizations.
