Out of curiosity, do you know if the Sunset offering would be an accurate representation of the W&LE prototype?


I see those units periodically in Medina.  If I were to place a reservation it would likely be for one of those.

Since all 51 W&LE SD40-2 units are hand me downs from various Class I Railroads, it's not really feasible to make an "accurate" version as there would be 51 variances.

Not all units are unique. It would be easy to make some with ratcheting nose brakes and others with a brake wheel. That's about the biggest difference aside from fuel tanks (3,200 vs 4,000). The ditch lights and horns are all the same.

A W&LE SD40-2 would be no more difficult to make than any other railroad's version.
