Well, what we have here is a N&W High Nose Experimental GP18Xac. Here are a few quick shots. Remember, it's gonna be a "what if?" Norfolk & Western unit. The 18 comes from the 1850hp prime mover used from the trade in GP-9. The shell & frame are from a vintage Smokey Valley GP15-I Kit, the dynamic brakes came from an ATLAS GP-38, the cab is Athearn, and the nose is Cannon. I lowered the bolsters on the Athearn trucks to get it down in the weeds. The rear class lights were filled in with Cannon knock outs. Don't know if I'm gonna put others on the rear, N&W was starting to get away from them in the late '70s.
