The EMD SD40-2 is a railroad classic, almost all major railways in US and Canada had it and most engines are still operating. This model is a highly accurate depiction of NS SD40-2 locomotive number 3359 one of Norfolk Southern's 254 SD40-2s.
This may well be the most detailed SD40-2 available on the net. The model is accurate to nuts and bolts and has been built with great precision, a lot of time has been spent ensuring this skin is prototypical and that this engine has Norfolk Southern's exclusive features like top cab positioned horns, anti-climbers, correctly positioned and shaped headlights.
