Elizabeth Allen started with a Proto 2000 SD9 and will end up with Southern Pacific SD9E No. 4350 late in its career. This is a major HO scale re-detailing project with Cannon fans, scratchbuilt ice breaker bars (the data came from Dave Maffei, networking being part of the RPM’s), PSC handrail stanchions and BLMA grabs. Note the blanked out number boards and scratchbuilt ladders (on both the short and long hood ends). Elizabeth milled the frame to give it more definition and fabricated the pilots and hose boxes. An interesting oddity on this engine is the use of stamped handrail stanchions on the sides and pipe stanchions on the ends. Also note the conduits and extra detailing effort below the sills, an area often left barren on models. The 4350 will be painted in SP’s scarlet and gray. The plows and other details are Details West, Detail Associates or scratch. No. 4350 has DCC.


Elizabeth said “This is a stock SD45.” Well, it represents a stock EMD diesel, but there is


nothing stock about the HO model. This will be SP 8816 and began as a Proto 2000 en- gine. It uses an Athearn frame modified to fit the Cannon & Company details on the tank. The Cannon cab has a Hi-Tech front (with a wider righthand window for visibility). The number boards have been filled in, a Gyralite and side-by-side Cannon headlights have been notched into the top of the short hood, and extended range dynamics are among the new parts. The loco wears all kinds of etched brass, stainless steel and cast jewelry.

There is no question about what paint scheme will be on the HO model


. This


MP15DC uses Athearn SW1500 and Atlas parts, radiators fabricated from styrene and etched Plano walkways, plus a collection of parts in little bags. It is Tim Jamin’s work.
