We would like to buy him something that we can customize with our Agency's colors and logo/shield. So, where do we go from here? Buy a locomotive, rolling stock or flat car with a trailer that can be painted with agency colors/shield, etc.....Suggestions?

Lastly, is there anybody out there that specializes in custom painting said item?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

FEMA train? Are they putting logos on them now?

I thought they'd be the unmarked stealth version.

There's N, HO, and O, OO, G, TT and Z. I've only ever used N and HO scales trains but own a ton of O stuff from the 1940's/1950's.

I haven't bought or used any train stuff in the longest time.

You can give try contacting CMR and see if they can get you what you need. I'm not sure if they do actual engines or only buildings/scenery.

How about a Leatherman tool with "Always Think Forfeiture" engraved on it?

Seriously, you can not mention model railroading in GD without an imitation crab meat thread derailment (no pun intended).

What happen?

Such a gift really needs to be based upon inside knowledge of which scale he runs - and whether he would even prefer such a gift.  Train folks can be very, very specialized.

Great gift idea OP. I have no idea how to help you.

You should expect some ass-hattery in GD.

People made comments about imitation crab meat and FEMA trains, you know, GD just being GD, and butt hurt ensued so the OP shut it down.

Why did OP's post deserve such derision?  Maybe I'm just not cool enough to understand.
