    Proto 2000 SD7 & SD9 Shell Question

    Hello all, I currently have a Proto 2000 Denver & Rio Grande Western SD7 locomotive. My favorite railroad is BNSF and I see Proto 2000 has made BNSF & Great Northern SD9 locomotives. My question is, would a Proto 2000 SD9 shell fit onto the body of a Proto 2000 SD7?

    Two SD9s lead a short manifest Northbound on the Fever River Layout. The train is passing the Erie Illinois Station where roofing work is being done. Kudos to Dave Moore for an excellent job on the station!
