Hi Everyone,

I spoke to Scott about adding an NYS&W SD40-2 to the line of offerings for the SD40-2 project. He said if we can get together 5-6 units orders he will add it to the roster. If this were to be added, I'd put in 2 orders for Susquehanna scheme. We'd only need a few more to make it happen. Comment below and I can follow up with Scott.

The two road numbers I mentioned to Scott were #3018 and #3022. Based off of photos it looks like these two road numbers would fit the bill for the Sunset project. Pictures below (these are not my photos).  #3010 and #3014 are SD40T-2 and I'd assume that those would not work with the tooling given the different radiator intakes and radiator fan grills.

Any thoughts on road numbers......I think the #3018 was the only "as built"  SD40-2 operated......others were rebuilt tunnel motors or "hybrids".  Apologies if I am incorrect,

I believe you're correct, Oneonta.  According to what I can find, #3022 remained in her original SD40 carbody, but was re-classed as an SD40-2 by NYSW after rebuilding.

I know a Lionel SD40-2 and a Sunset 3rd Rail SD40-2 are on different playing fields, but 3018 was done by Lionel as a custom run for METCA.  Again, these might be 2 different customer bases / audiences.

I live right off the NYSW main in NJ and would love one of these or similar equipment. Are there likely to be any NYSW offerings from Lionel in the future?
