A CP SD60 in HO Scale

(By Dan Dell’Unto)

The ironic part was I started with a Proto 2000 SD60 painted in SOO colours. I took all the details off it, disassembled, stripped the paint, made any necessary modifications, and repainted/decaled it as a CP 6200 series SD60 rebuilt by CAD Rail. There's a few minor things I left off and didn't change to keep it easy (like those white PTC antennas on the cabs that CP installed later on, and I couldn't find the exact numberboard font) and a few yet to install (rear ditch lights, all weather window) but overall it was a fun project.
