copyright would protect original depictions of the loco, but not the loco's image in general
so you could take a photo or paint it, and the photo or painting would be your copyright
so you would not need a license since copyright does not protect the appearance, it only protects physical artwork, photos etc
does that answer your question?
Yes, perfect. That's what I thought but good to hear it from an attorney!
