HO Scale Diesel Locomotive Models
Southern Pacific System has never rostered

see my Roster Index for an indication of what SP did Roster

Most of the time this question arises from models that have been produced, that may or may not be available in Southern Pacific paint schemes.

Note: Modelers designations will apply here, that is after all the target audience.

Additions and corrections welcome.

SP already had 340 GP9's by the time the GP18 came out. SP buying the last GP9's ever made, and the only low-noses to a Major Railroad. 20 Phase III's were delivered in Grey and Scarlet as 5872-5891, and built in August and September of 1959.
A high-nose GP18 can be made into a GP9, at least some of the SP/SSW ones came with two 48" fans, as well as four 36" fans. Or a low-nose version can be made into one of the last 20 Phase III GP9's or a GP20 with a bit more work.

SP has never had 'production' SD40-2's as produced by Athearn. SP bought the SD40T-2 Tunnel Motor variant instead. EMD apparently now does recognize this designation!
and NOW that railroad known as "Unlimited Parking" designates these as SD40-2T's - really!

SP has never had 'production' SD45-2's as produced by Rail Power Products. SP bought the SD45T-2 Tunnel Motor variant instead. EMD doesn't recognize this designation either, they call all the variants SD45-2's, which tends to cause confusion.

SD50's made it into the SP Roster when SP and DRGW merged.

SP did roster the similar SD70M.

SP ordered 3, proposed #900-902, but they were never delivered, UP bought SP beforehand.

Yes SP does Roster U28B's but these were 4 Demonstrators that came in U25B carbodies. The Athearn model can't be used, use a Stewart U25B instead.

Denver & Rio Grande owned SW1000's.
