    Hi all,

    The topic says it all!
    I'm considering bashing a couple GP-40MCs for my MBTA commuter trains.

    The chassis I'm leaning toward is an Athearn GP40X high hood. Although probably not a perfect match, I find the body is quite similar to the MBTA version with the long radiator flares. I'm going for the high hood version so that I may use them on Guilford GP-35s later on!

    The cab will probably come from detail associates. They have several add-on versions of the wide cab...generally intended for the GP-60M But I think they will work just fine! Here's their canadian cab.

    Stay tuned for more updates!
    I'd love to hear any advice or suggestions!

    You might have luck checking out Kaslo cabs also, they might have a close match (I'm not sure though).
