California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific SD40T-2
The post 1980 build Tunnel Motors came equipped with a 'Q' exhaust silencer to meet noise pollution requirements. This required a modified blister at the front of the dynamic brake, (I think for the dynamic brake contactors).
In HO Scale, this part used to be made by Yellowstone, and later Warren's, (or the other way around...). With the release of the upgraded 'snoot' SD40-2 from Athearn, this modified dynamic brake blister is now available as a spare part, allowing you to easily and correctly model a post 1980 build Tunnel Motor.
The Athearn part number for this blister is: #45040
Modeling choices at the moment are:
