The new CLP60WTI4 demonstrator

My Northwestern Pacific fleet includes now an environmental friendlier engine. The new CLP60WTI4 built by the Rebuilder Calpower (California Locomotive Power) is right now on lease for evaluation.

According to the specs, it is a rebuilt SD60M with special upgrades so that the engine already meets the Tier 3 requirements and most of the Tier 4, way ahead of schedule. This would make it very attractive to smaller railroad companies. They could take advantage of the huge numbers of SD50 and SD60 engines that have been retired by UP and other companies over the last few years.
It still has the same amount of horsepower as the SD60 but with less fuel consumption and smaller amount of pollution.

Here are some pictures.

Any prototype photos?

EDIT: Ever painted any Idaho Northern & Pacific engines? Interested in custom painting for a handsome fee?

Steve, the cut is right in front of the huge radiators which masks it perfectly. The lower part has a door right at the cut. It sticks out a little bit more obvious but not too much. You can see it on the third picture on the left of the C of Calpower. The Kato shell is a little bit thicker than the Atlas. That gave me enough surface to glue them together.
