    Are you bashing the model from 3D file sources or purely messing with FA?

    Just messing with the FA and textures. SP replaced a big chunk of the hood on the SD40M-2 version I'm modeling.

    I wish more people would understand with the "flintstone wheels" as Pete does. It's frustrating you do so much work to put into a paint project, for certain individuals to snub their nose at it, and not use it, just because of the wheels. It's personally why I haven't done much recently for releases.

    Looking forward to this locomotive!

    Thanks. This means a lot coming from you.

    I'd like to get the Cascades Crossing Locomotive Upgrade pack tied up before Sean releases his Shasta Route.

    Quick update:

    Began rebuilding the long hood, got some parts from 7400 and the GP39-2 to replace the handrails and add more rear details.

    Special thanks to Pete Willard for listening to my request for a diesel-era SP Roman font.

    I really want this locomotive since sp stuff is rare. A really up to date Dash9 and C40 and B40 units would be nice too!

    Michelle, SP never rostered any C40-8s or -8Ws, so there may not be much coming in that direction. However, I do have some AC44s in production on the SLI Green River shape.

    Ah, I don't mind Brody. Nice job on those units. Pete Willard now has a better set of SP Roman letters and numbers.

    Wow, that looks really nice Brody. I would love a really nice AC44 SP unit. And thank you for the Info on the Cotton Belt, I knew I saw one painted in sp colors but the name was so faded.

    Well, no photo update, but I've begun rebuilding the long hood today.

    No problem Parker. I like the SP just as much as the ATSF, MEC and D&H. Though to be fair, I liked the failed SPSF era the best.
