Conventional SD45 AA set

MTH hasn't yet made a SD45 in Southern Pacific

They have made SD45 in Union Pacific "Scaleking" and Premier Powered & Dummy (I would avoid the early undersized railking model).

EDIT:  The Early Premier which later became "Scaleking" was the only version available in Conventional, Horn only or PS1.

Thanks for this! Do you happen to know the MTH model number? I haven't been able to sleuth it down.

20-2106 Early Premier SD45  (not available in non-powered) PS1 or horn only.

30-20419 Scaleking SD45 (Same as Early Premier SD45, but improved with scale fuel tank and painted handrails). Available in PS3 or non-powered. MTH refers to these as Railking Scale.

Excellent, thanks for this great info!

What is your opinion of the Williams “double headed” SD45 sets?

Great to see a bit of west coast presence here. I’m down in Pebble and there is no O gauge happening anywhere around the Monterey area. This forum is my sole source for info that has helped me get my layout up and running after 30 years in boxes.

The Williams are good pullers - Some early versions have FM train master style sideframes. Some early versions also had no flywheels.

They are unprototypical due to wide carbody, they are enlarged copies of the old Athearn Blue box SD45.

The Great Train Show was this past weekend at Pleasanton, there was some great deals on Williams diesels (under $100).
