Freshly painted ATSF "snoot" SD40-2 loco. Every diesel on your Santa Fe roster does not have to weathered as diesels are constantly being repainted. Additional antennae on roof establish this loco as capable of being operated by remote control.
While undergoing a repaint, F45 unit 5938 received an upgraded antennae and an air conditioning unit. This JnJ shell was painted, decaled, and weathered, and fit to a Kato SD45 mechanism. This unit also sports BLMA 48" eight blade fans.
