Modeling SBK's R47/50 Tonners

Recommended Posts

Received this engine here, it was Bachmann Spectrum GE70 Ton diesel switcher, I did some kitbashing and i'm waiting for the glue to dry on the cab sp I may detail it.


Basically this is being modeled after one of the two South Brooklyn Railway (SBK) GE subway locomotives/switchers. N1 & N2 are part of the R47 class built for the NYCTA in the 70's. Nowadays they can be seen anywhere along the subway in work service, but are the only two engines allowed to make off property moves.
