Here is a SD24 B unit I just completed. 2/24/07 

 

 

 

 

December 2006

All 3 BN SD40-2 B units were in Galesburgthis last summer 

I photographed all 3

 

 

 

 

They are all different with the 7500 having the lovered grills and an anticlimber. 7502 and 7502 both have the older chicken wire type grills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main difference is the dynamics sections on the 7502 and the raised walkway on the 7501


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I HAVE  BEEN BUILDING B UNITS FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW.
