my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific GP38-2
Modeling an SP GP38-2 is not as straight forward as I originally said here.
The Mainline Modeler article listed below, also shows the construction of the 'flush exhaust stacks' that the original order had. Although they may possibly be available as a detail part from Miniatures by Eric; made for Canadian 38-2's but applicable to SP's.
Modeling one of the leaser's, will involve careful study of prototype photo's, as these are rebuilt units from other Railroads, and do not necessarily have standard SP features, eg. 4873 has a Leslie horn.
From Jean-Marie Syx of Belgium comes these series of images showing an under construction HO Scale 'snowfighter' GP38-2:
