THIS IS A FAVORITE

I BUILT THE GP40 X FOR RANDY OLSON

USING A KATO GP 35 AND ADDING A

SD45 REAREND

 ALONG WITH CANNON GRILLS

 

 

 THE IC, LIKE MOST ROADS HAD A LOT 

OF VARIATATIONS ON THE REBUILDS

 
USING NCE DECODERS I ADDED SEPERATE

 CONTROLLS FOR THE CAB AND

 NOSE LIGHTS 

I USED FIBER OPTICS FOR THE  LIGHTS

 

 

 

 


REWORKING THE FRONT STEPS ON BOTH

 SIDES, AND ADDED NEW STANCHIONS

 WITH .015 BRASS WIRE

 

 

 

 

SD20 IN THE MIDDLE

WAY TOO MUCH WORK

 

 

 

 

 

A LOT OF CANNON PARTS ON THE 20s

WE STARTED WITH A SD9

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THESE WERE BUILT BY A

FRIEND

 RICK GHER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KATO SD40-2

CHECK OUT THE RAILINGS

I USED THE KATO STANCHION AND

 DRILLED THEM OUT TO FIT .015 WIRE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A TRIO OF KATOS
