    Never thought of adding a fuel tender, but I've got an SD 60M in Eagle colors, so I can really appreciate the freelance motive.

    So THAT'S what a non-Borged SD90 looks like..... [​IMG] :D

    The "screaming eagle" is a nice touch, too.

    I can answer that- MP did indeed have SD40-2s, both with and without dynamic brakes. The non--DB diesels were in the 3000 series, while the ones with DB were in the 6000 series . When MP was absorbed by UP, the 3000s were repainted and relettered into the 4000 series (UP colors and all).

    I shot a lot of MP power at Van Buren, AR and Kansas City, MO, and prefer their blue over the yellow & gray any day.

    yep they had them both, BUT the sd40-2's with dynamic were the later phase with the newer style grilles and also wheel handbrake instead of the lever. but i just so happen to have a couple of them made from parts of a snoot and then the regular sd40-2. i will get some shots here soon. as for my fleet, you can never have enough mopac! i now have the entire roster of gp38's the mopac had, but that is only 6!!!! :D

    I model HO, but I built 5 GP35Ms, two in MP colors and three in Kiamichi paint. Pretty neat conversion, really- easier when you start with a RPP shell. Wonder if anyone has built 'em in N scale........
