Southern Pacific SD45T-2 9254 from the Athearn Model

These started out as factory painted Athearn SD45T-2's. I found photos and redetailed them to match. Some of the additions include a new plow, plow removed from the rear of the unit, MU hoses and coupler cut bars added, lift rings added, air lines and speed recorder added, windshield wipers added, operating ditch lights were cut in and added. Cab vents that were in the wrong place were removed. All parts were touched up with Floquil SP Lark dark gray. Handrails were abrasivized and repainted to get rid of the plastic look. Entire unit was reclearcoated to blend in all of the modifications and reassembled.
