Howdy out there. New to the Site. Hopefully somebody with some expertise can help. I just bought an Athearn HO scale SD40. It looks like it comes with a separate package of some sort inside box (possibly handrails). Is this normal? I thought the description specified factory installed handrails and grabirons.



Thanks

Are the handrails installed? If you have handrails installed they may be offering the same they do in the newer SD40-2's with plastic & metal handrails.

Thanks Josh. The handrails are installed. (Just wanted to make sure that everything that should come installed was on.)

You're welcome. I'd assume Athearn does this so those modelers who prefer metal rails can install them.
