Greetings. I have a question for anyone that dabbles in the art of modifying locos to prototype specs. I would like to purchase a couple of BroadwayLimited undecorated SD40-2's and paint them in CP multi-mark livery. The hang up is that the headlights would not be prototypical. To make it acceptable I would have to relocate the headlights to the nose, place a bell where the headlights originally were and add marker lights. If anyone has taken on this challenge I would like to correspond with you! If anyone has suggestions as to where I could find the detail parts to achieve my goal, etc please share!!!!! I am a desperate Canadian Pacific modeler that just wants an accurate SD40-2!!!
