N scale PRR U25C's

Has anyone kit bashed a PRR U25C from the Arnold model?  There are a few differences from most U25C's such as a longer raised walkway on the engineer's side.   I find it interesting that Arnold/Hornby released a Conrail scheme, but not a PRR scheme.  I guess they figured either the PRR was not popular or that the SPF's would complain loudly.

I've been holding out to see if they retool the model for PRR only.  If someone sees them at the NSE or NMRA national shows, could you ask them?  Maybe I give up and pick up what I can now and try to modify it accordingly.

 :?
  who else besides PRR/PC did CR get U25Cs from ?
  U25Bs came from 4 original sources,but U25Cs should
  have only come from 1.
   but they may have been at least 2 phases,and the U25CUs.

Only PRR's U25Cs became Conrail's. 

This table summaries the 3+ different phases, but doesn't account for the walkway differences:

Examples of all U25C's are here: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/locoList.aspx?mid=282

So I'm guessing Arnold/Hornby didn't make it to Kansas City.

I must be the only one that cares about a PRR U25C, so that's probably why they didn't produce any.
