Will an Athearn RTR shell fit on an Athearn BB frame and running gears? If not, which frames and running gears will an Athearn RTR SD40-2 shell fit on? I am thinking of a project which includes an Athearn RTR SD40-2 shell. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I have an Athearn SD40-2 that I cut the mounting tabs off the body. I simply have kadee coupler boxes screw onto the stock frame pads, which capture the body shell via the snowplows.
Thank you. I will keep this in mind.
I've used the thin double face picture hanging strips. The one that sticks to the picture is permanent & the one that sticks on the wall is easy to remove. I use those strips between the shell & the frame & it's easy to get the shell off w/out removing everything else.
