As popular as the SD40-2 was, I'm surprised Sunset can't obtain enough reservations to produce the model.
What is the explanation for this?
My own theory is that the current Sunset market is geared toward earlier models, so the venture toward selling more modern equipment needs to capture a different segment if the market. And that market might have been tainted when they produced their first diesel in the 1990s..the GE dash 9, which was really bad compared to what they're doing now.
Other manufacturers have produced this model for the 3 rail market, but the same other manufacturers have produced most of the other stuff that Sunset has no problems selling.
Does anybody have any ideas as to how we can assist Sunset with getting enough orders to run the model?
