Nice side frames, but expensive. 44.48€ per pair :o It comes the time for an own SLA 3D printer for 500 bucks.

More expensive than Shitways for sure. But you get what you pay for. I stopped buying Shitways garbage material years ago.

What is the square thing on the back of the roof? It's installed instead one of the fans.

It is a winterization hatch. The purpose of it is to redirect hot air back into the engine room to increase the ambient temperature and reduce the risks of coolant freezing and fuel gelling.

As I have been asked by some of you for detail parts in recent months, I am now looking for suitable round workpieces for my CNC milling machine. Then there would be couplers and light adapters. Probably also my dynamic brake. For the fuel tank is 3D-printing more suitable.

I haven't a blueprint or drawing of the handrails. There used to be etched handrails from Carsten.

Here's what came to my mind. Maybe this helps:
trainweb.org - EMD Drawings
trainiax.net - Photos of GP9RM
trainiax.net - Drawings of GP9

It was a few years ago and just a private offer (mainly for Iris Creek Valley RR). You can ask him if he would do a further batch.
