    announce1 Does anyone know whether an SDP45 (i.e. the passenger version) has ever been produced?
    I'd like one to pull my SP bilevel passenger cars in sold gray livery! :D

    As that site notes, the SD50/60 mechanism and the SD40T-2/SD45T-2 mechanism are the right size - but they have HT-C trucks. If only Atlas actually represented all SD50s with their model... The first three orders out of Conrail's four had trade-in Flexicoil trucks, like all CR SD40-2s. A model of one of these would probably be a better starting point for an SDP45, combined witha n SD45 shell. Atlas's Conrail SD50s can only represent Conrail's last order.

    Thanks Herc for the websites with the pictures (good lookin' beasts ain't they?*), and you and Triplex for the advice. Food for thought.
    I have also contacted Intermountain to see if they may one day bring out this version.
    If they say anything useful I'll post.
