I fixed the pilots on this engine and its sister a few years ago and at that time added Kadee couplers and full-length handrails. More recently, I got around to detailing it into an SD40U. In addition to rooftop details, I moved the horn to the long hood and added an air line. I also scratch built an air filter. At some point I will probably plate over the front class lights. In time Santa Fe moved the headlights on these into the nose. It's no fun going inside an Atlas diesel though, so for now the headlight remains where it is. It still needs a little more weathering in spots.

Nice work Rich! Yeah, especially re-wiring stuff in those shells - a daunting task.

Looks great.

Thank you, guys.

John, it occurs to me maybe we should have a new category, "Diesel Detailing," or something similar.
