    yep, i have been pretty buisy lately. most of these projects have been sitting around half finished for a while, and now that i finally got time off i have been finishing them.

    but, this one is a one day project. i started yesterday morning and finished it last night. it started off as an Athearn SD40-2. i added the Cannon high nose kit, grab irons, hood mounted bell, ditchlights, MU hoses and recepticles, coupler cut levers, and new decals. it was actually a really easy conversion. all that is left to do is add a 5 chime horn to each end (they were out of stock when i got all the other parts )

    Nice job on all the locos you posted. I like this one the best, probably because I had the oppertunity to see a prototype one close-up.
    Keep up the good work.
