#2?

Postby ConducTTor » Mon Apr 11, 2011 4:43 pm

I'm getting to the point where the U30B is down to quotes for production, detailing the shell and tying up some loose ends. I don't want to jump the gun since nothing is written in stone yet and the project may ultimately fail. But, I'm starting to think about what's next.

I'd wanted to do an EMD SW1 but have decided to leave that until later. I've settled on three prototypes and would like to know what your preference is.

So vote :smile:

Does GE B40-8W mean this version: http://www.flickr.com/photos/high_iron/2487713807/ ? If yes, wow - 4,000 hp on 4 axles!

Actually, I would vote for any of them (including the SW1). You didn't have an "All of the Above" though! But there were more of the B23-7's built, so that was my vote.

Yup, that's the one. It's also the basis for the Genesis locomotive.

isn't a B23-7 rather like a U30B anyway? but then i'm kind of biased against GEs ...

Kind of like yes. A bit longer, different trucks, different fuel tank and, different cab. But generally close.

I would have voted for "ConducTTor Werks" RTR version of SD40, if that was an option (yes, I am aware about A&D SD40-2 being in the works).
