    Default A GP40TC and a ten wheeler

    Hello, let me start off by saying I feel kinda bad for doing this, seeing as it was previously shunned upon, but could somebody please build an Amtrak GP40TC, seen here:

    And a Cooke Locomotive Works 4-6-0 with matching passenger cars.

    If you need dimensions of any type, or additional pictures of the 2248 and its cars, just let me know and I will get them.

    Anyone attempting a GP40TC would have a tricky time, as these units are even more odd than they look at first glance. For example, the nose was trimmed shorter and the cab moved forward about a foot from its normal position on an EMD loco! There are a lot of other weird surprises as well, which isn't exactly unusual for prototype kitbashes...

    I'd love to take a stab at a TC someday, but without a library of EMD parts, it'd be quite an undertaking to start from scratch!
