    Cool Danny´s SP GP38-2 Update

    Well I believe this is a better place to put in my work and not further bumb the Donating-thread.

    As for those who not know what´s going on, I have updated the SP GP38-2 that Danny made available for us.

    There is a good amount of texture work done like, windows, classification lights, Dash 2 showglass, updates around the air intakes, updated roof top and minor update to the rear headlight.
    Shape file modification was required to remove the fans.
    I have done a little F/A to simulate the newer Dash 2 fans and to add the "flush" exhaust stacks:

    Now for some pictures of the work in progress:





    The finished locomotive looks like that:







    Thank you Danny for releasing your stuff !!!
    I hope you like the update!

    The GP38-2 turned out better than I was thinking of so the 4835 will get 7 sisters.

    Here are 4803 and 4807 on a test run: http://espee.railfan.net/nonindex/gp..._paul_ehni.jpg


    The lights and exhaust is set up too. Thanks to you! They are Houston assigned in the 80´s and 4814 and 4821 will come soon to pair.
    I will go forward and do 4 more numbers without Classification Lights assigned to:
    El Paso: 4825 and 4834
    Roseville: 4844
    Los Angeles: 4835
    I´ve found some good photos to prove this.

    Somebody out there who is interested in those ?!?

    Looks pretty good matching with Conrail power heading towards Selkirk New York from Elkhart..

    With so many original Southern Pacific routes out there, please consider these to be 'automatically' of interest!

    I am! I was going to start fixing these issues myself, but you've beaten me to it. Would love to have them.

    these are very nice locomotives to any fan of the Southern Pacific, and I definitely like the L-shaped window on the cab
