       Eric took four Kato HO scale SD40-2 locomotives, added different noses, two to be snoots, as well as the wealth of roof details called for by standard Santa Fe prototype practices.

       He carefully matched the Kato versions of Santa Fe Yellow and Santa Fe Blue in order to blend in the new detail parts to the factory-painted models.

       From the completed model photos, he has done a fantastic job.
