Equestria National Ry. SD-40-2 Model - HO Scale by lonewolf3878 Equestria National Ry. SD-40-2 Model - HO Scale by lonewolf3878
Edit: Now with a matching Maunta/Tyco caboose.

I had an Athearn SD-40-2 shell laying around that was substandard (by that I mean someone tried doing their own custom and put the paint on so thick it hid details and paint thinner couldn't even get it off, and did a couple of stupid modifications to it. I bought it used so I could use the chassis on another model), and decided to make a custom based on my drawing of EN engines.
 I made the letter and number decals on my computer. I made the red stripes to go with them, but because the decal paper was clear they couldn't hide the blue, so I had to use pinstriping tape. It's unpowered, but if I want to I can easily swap it out with a powered chassis from one of my other SD-40's (EDIT: It is now a powered engine). I still have to give it numberboards.

You really should make a bunch of these and sell em. But then you wouldn't have them any more

I'm seriously wanting to do my own custom trains like this now. Nice job!
