My wife "let" me buy an Atlas C40-8W in Conrail paint yesterday. It's pretty swwet. I have a couple of questions about detailing it up.

The Atlas plow is totally wrong for the Conrail units. I have been looking, and Details West makes a plow they say is for Conrail units. It is part number PL-342. Is that the correct one?

I would also like to upgrade the horn to a Details West part. Is part number 328 correct? It is labeled as "Leslie SU-3L-R". Thanks for your help.


The Name's Really Matt...
I e-mailed Wes Reminder about this a while back. He uses PL-155. To me, it looks like that would be correct.

Thanks guys. After more research, it seems the 155 would be the best bet for the plow.
