ugh, 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

So I have started a build-up of an N Scale model of Southern Pacific GP35E #6300. I have a nused Kato built Atlas model (fits in well with my U30C), and I have been studying all photos that I can find of her (Thanks again Tom Fassett). I had a N Scale of Nevada rear light package and bell, got some Micro-Trains couplers, BLMA cab shades and MU cables (man those things are tiny), and Detail Associates lights.

I took the body off of the GP35, and I used an emery board to file off the foot boards, swapped out the couplers, got to the lights, and DA 8218 duel  Pyle lights look like a great fit. Too bad the single light, DA 8219 is too small. It is now time for a quick change of plans. Perhaps Intermountain has a stash of nose lights that they use for their tunnel motors laying around…..
