Here we have B40-8 or as Atlas calls it, a Dash 8-40B, #7412. I found a few pictures on the net of this loco. From the factory, Atlas did a good job of supplying add on details. The Plow, the big MU cable, and the sunshades are stock from the factory. This loco came with a stock Lenz Decoder, but the lights are an unprototypical blue color. I changed the front one out with one that more matches the prototype. Once this was done, I programmed the decoder so it'll run with the rest of the fleet.
Another great looking loco is ready for service on the Owens Valley Sub.
Details include:
BLMA MU hoses, air hoses, windshield wipers, rear view mirrors, antenna stands, AC unit
Modified Atlas plow
Atlas bell
Weathered with chalks
Z scale couplers
