CSX-RDMT's

I am in the process of building a RDMT from a ATLAS GP35.In researching photos I have found some pics of what appear to be GP38/40s with (I think I have this right) extended range dynamic brakes.

Can anybody confirm this is right or are they just upgraded GP35's.They do look longer than a 35 to me.

Also I have only one clear rear pic but that one has the lights blanked out on the long hood,is this a common modification?

As always any help is appreciated.

Would sure be easier if Mark did the long hoods.  ;D

CSX's RDMT are made from GP30, GP35, GP38, GP39 and GP40's.
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

Forgot about the second part of your question, the RDMT keep there dynamic brakes, fuel tanks and traction motors.

Depending on what you are going to do, be careful that you watch the thickness of the sidesill on the GP35s.

Phase 1 units have a fat sidesill, and phase 2 units have a very skinny sidesill.


Atlas made phase 1 models.

Based on recent conversations, it might be wise to let Mark at Mark4Design know that this would be a popular conversion kit...    ::)
