CSX GP15T Questions
« on: April 22, 2013, 07:34:45 PM »

I am looking at bashing a GP15-1 into a GP15T using the N scale Trainman model. I was wondering if anybody knew whether or not the 15T's were RC equipped or not. I also have a short list of things that need changed including the exhaust, dynamic blister and the radiator. Are there any other major differences that I'm missing?

Thanks,
Ryan

Robb,

Wasn't mark4design going to make these shells at one time or did that project get shelved?  He's still showing the GP15-1 as a future project...

I've never met a covered hopper I didn't like.... :)

I'm pretty sure he's making them... you'll just have to drop him a line, he's really busy with his day jobs and doesn't update his site.  I know that somebody here got some of the non-inertial shells for a BN former Frisco unit.

Wow, that is a huge help!  Thanks a bunch for the side-by-side comparison.  I have parts on order, so I will be interested to see how I get along with this bash.  I have been wanting to do this one for a long time and those long hood comparisons are going to come in handy. 

Thanks,
Ryan
