Are any of our model makers interested in odd-ball locomotives?

    I've never even seen SD SP.
    SUPER SEVEN, I sent suggestions to the creators but they were not interested.

    So I made a model myself based on theirs.

    I HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH THE VARIATIONS.​

    Yeah I know those exist, I just don’t really count them since they’re unobtainable for most. At least you still have it to enjoy.

    I remember seeing those units in the Eugene Yard in the early 80's I thought they were very cool and desperately wanted an HO scale version of them as I am also a model railroad enthusiast and have been since I was 10 years old.

    Also Unoriginal before Diesels west became a members only club they did offer a set of SDP45's which I was lucky enough to get along with the other SP sets and the DRGW Geep 30's and Tunnelmotors.

    I just wish for GE super 7s and EMD SDP45s. The former I don't think has ever been in the sim before.

    I know of two railroads - Utah Railway and IC&E - that used Morrison-Knutsen rebuilds with oddball noses.

    An updated version of the BQ23-7 would be fun to have.

    When all else fails... get hold of someone else's model and kitbash.

    My crude attempt at a Crandall.

    Ahh interesting, I'll have to see what I can google up about it's history.

    ...After I'm done downloading everything Conrail from that page.

    Is this the locomotive known as the "Beep"?

    The cabless units do stand out when you seem them. SLI had done a "cabless" GE B30 in one of their BN locomotive packs, and
    BLW has GP9B #600 in their BN Freight Engines pack, and also a UP GP9B in their GP West 1 pack.

    I was familiar with the Crandall Cabs off hand, but had to google the AB6 (although I realize I've seen it before). I think there is a VERRRY OLLLD Crandall Cab locomotive in the files library.

    BLW/Valleypass I actually own quite a few products from. A quick dig through the TSRE consist builder shows that I've got various GP7/9/20/30 and SD24 B-Units from them in my collection already from ATSF, BN, UP, and Conrail, and F7A/B sets from BN and Conrail.

    I seem to have some SLI repaints for a BNSF SD40-2B and an ATSF painted SD45-2B. I used to have some other 40-2B units in my collection in Canadian Pacific red and BN green, but they were OLLLLD low poly models, probably repaints of the original MSTS locomotives or slight shape file modifications, that I replaced a year or two back with some nicer sets from Streamlines.

    I'm not sure who you mean by "GB" though?
