This is my second attempt at detailing a BN SD60M. The first one was about half way done when it fell off the workbench and busted into pieces. Maybe it was a good thing, because there were some aspects of it that I didn't like, which were fixed on this loco. I did quite a few mods on this loco, more then I usually do, and I think they paid off. Mostly it's the fuel tank and air tanks that I like. I sanded off that stupid line in the middle of the fuel tank, and cut out the stock air tanks. I added some Sunrise Ent. air tanks, positioned in the correct place above the fuel tank. A pain to do, yes, but I like the way they pop out. I didn't weather this loco too heavy, since these SD60M's were only 6 months old during my modeling time period. Along with the standard cabed SD50/60, these are the largest locos to run on the OVS. I kept the stock Digitrax/Atlas decoder.
