I never posted pictures of these commissioned models on my old website, but I am including them now for completion.
This HO-Scale Southern Pacific “Kodachrome” SD40T-2, #8526, is an Athearn “Blue Box” model that I was commissioned to work on in November 2007. Whoever originally assembled it had incorrectly painted the handrails red instead of yellow. It also needed to have a pilot plow added.
I added the pilot plow and repainted the handrails yellow. I also painted the horn yellow.
