Southern Pacific B36-7

A major difference that has come up, concerns the engine compartment door arrangement. David Thompson went to the trouble of researching the door arrangement, in response to requests on the Newsgroups.

With his permission - I have reproduced his post here B30-7\B36-7 Door Arrangement

Modeling one of these will require converting a B23/30-7 model. To be accurate you may need to rearrange the hood doors.
