The prototypes for these three models have something in common, well ok, lots of things starting with flanged wheels but I am thinking of something less obvious. Any guesses?
Models are MRL 651, RailPower shell and Athearn drive, BN2768, P2K with a little Cannon added, and Camas Prairie 3, RailPower and Athearn.
HP rating, or, rebuilt, maybe all by M-K (I know the GP39 was, unless its a VMV one).
The GP39 was done by EMD, MRL probably did (or had done by LRC) the 651 at their Livingston shops. I don't know who did the Camas Prairie B23-7 but it may have been done at LRC as its paint job was the same as the LRC leasors.
Ahhh, a GP39E... So was I right?
