Atlas HO Scale model SSW FP7
The Microscale sheet 87-50 (for the Daylight version) has the required ST. LOUIS SOUTHWESTERN lettering, but for the COTTON BELT version, you will have to rob another sheet, 87-11 perhaps.
For a Blood Nose version, use Microscale 87-177 for the red wings, but again, the COTTON BELT lettering will have to come from 87-11
Remember that this unit never had dynamic brakes, so if you get a shell with them, they will need removing. Atlas did have at one time non-dynamic shells, they may still be available.
