    Does anyone know of any cab interior kits for Athearn locomotives? Just purchased a R-T-R BN GP35 and would like to add an interior to it. I know someone used to make cab interior kits as I saw them in an old Walthers catalog years ago. Can't find anything in the recent one though?

    I think it was GSB that offered a cab interior for the mis-named SW1500 - I put one in one of mine that I converted to an NW2. The plastic cover over the worm on the rear truck had to be filed down to get enough clearance for the floor to fit. I don't think that they made any interiors for the hood units, though. You'd have to get rid of that inefficient steel wiper system that feeds power to the motor if you wanted to put an interior in place, not a bad idea anyway.

    I think its either Details West, or Details Associates that have one. Its made specific for the Athearn Blue Box hood units, so not much modifications are needed.
    I have one, just haven't put it in anything yet.
