    Things are pretty quiet in the S Scale board, so I thought I'd add a quick post. While the project is not completely finished, an EMD GP40 DOES exist in S Scale. I've been working on the build using Bob Frascella's design. Bob has designed a series of second generation diesel EMD shells though Shapeways/Century Models. "S Scale Resource magazine" (Dec/Jan 2019) had an article by Bob titled, “Building Second Generation EMD Diesel Locomotives in S Scale.” and I decided to give it a go.

    While a lot of detail work remains, the basic engine is complete and wired with a Tsunami2 decoder. The prototype is WAMX 4040, currently in service with the Eastern Idaho Rail Road.

    To the best of our knowledge, this is the first S Scale GP40... hopefully, there will be others!
