Plain Jane's
Title:  Plain Jane's
Description:  Headed onto the "B" Line. I really don't understand NS's practice of taking delivery of engines in primer. These things had to be masked to be primed. How much more effort and time would it take to apply black paint. The white could wait if they're in that much of a rush, No? Could someone explain this?
