    This has to be one of the easiest kitbashes ever. :D Definately not cheap though as it involves a KATO SD40.(either scale-this one is N scale) and an ATLAS GP38 long hood.

    Thinking seriously of replacing GVR with NARA.:D :D

    Catt. I envy people like you that can bash different locos for one good one. I won't even try as I want to keep the few locos I have. :D :D

    Nice job Catt. I wish I had the eye to do something like this.

    Did you actually use two complete locos? I think both Atlas and Kato sell undecorated shells for all of their recent offerings at least. Of course if you did use two complete locos, you could always use the sd40 long hood on the gp38 chassis!

    Even though this one turned out so well I'm still nervous about wacking the second one.

    Good lookin' loco Catt. Now will the thought of NARA just go on the one loco? Not going away from GVR are you!!!

    Not after 25 years I'm not Robin.Actually I will most likely use the new GVR logo and just subletter NARA under the road number.
