my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Cotton Belt SD45T-2
Out of the box RTR Bicentennial T-Motor by Cliff West.
A HO Scale SD45T-2 kitbash from Jim Griffin - Jim tells us: The front half is an Rail Power Products SD45-2 shell with an Athearn cab; the balance of the long hood is from an Athearn SD40T-2. Various doors and seams are reworked; most details were scratchbuilt (bell, low nose light bracket, grabs,etc) except the plow and horn.
SSW SD45T-2 #9387, This was my first effort at an SD45T-2, it combines an Athearn GP38-2 nose, and 2 Athearn SD40T-2 bodyshells on an Athearn SD40T-2 chassis. This was way before Cannon & Co. came out with their EMD bits, and before the modeling articles listed were printed. Floquil Paint and Microscale #87-048 and #87-447 decals. Athearn stanchions with 20thou brass wire handrails.
