SP/Cotton Belt Late GP40-2 Proto Info Enquiry

Post by warbonnetuk » Tue Jan 29, 2013 3:29 pm


For a forthcoming loco build I'm looking to check a couple of detail points regarding the final batch of GP40-2's that SP / SSW took delivery of in 1984. Being a late build these units were delivered with 'Q' type radiator fans but can anyone out there confirm whether they were the 48' or 52' variety?

Similarly I'd also like to confirm whether these units were equiped with regular or extended range dynamic brakes?

The assistance of the SP scholars (or anyone else for that matter) on the forum is greatly appreciated :D
