my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific GP40P-2
A model will involve stretching a GP40-2 chassis and adding the steam generator compartment on the rear of the long hood.
If you have a spare SD40T-2 shell laying about, then you could use the flat rear end and steps of the long hood, or the Atlas SDP35 may provide better parts as this includes the steam gen. compartment as well.
The flared rear radiators will have to be scratchbuilt or robbed from an SD45 shell.
Others from the GP40 family could be used, but you will need to incorporate the Dash-2 features.
