finished model






Soo Line SD60 6020 from an Athearn SD60 model.
This model started out as a factory painted Soo Line SD60 from Athearn. I disassembled the model. From there I bent and added truck airlines and speed recorders. I modified the frame for operating ditchlights and installed Overland Models ditchlight castings on the model. At this time, I also added a new plow, MU hoses, coupler cut bars, Kadee 58 couplers, appropriate antennas and a beacon stand, lift rings and other appropriate details. I also repainted and redecaled the numberboard decals which weren't correct for the Soo prototype. The unit was semi glossed with half Testor's dullcoat and half Testor's glosscoat mixed with lacquer thinner, assembled with a Digitrax DH163 decoder and tested.
