I think I've almost nailed it.  Not to bad considering all I have to work with is a couple photos.

Looking good Bill. I like that pilot style. It's definitely cool that you get to do stuff with an ex-O&W engine as well.

A couple components for some variations of the 44 tonner.

Head light mounted number board.





GE cab wind screen.  The one I have built already was one made by the SP shops.

The 44 tonner had some options available for them.  That's what I've been working on lately.

Phase IV as the Visalia Electric had them. (With the exception of the horn)




Another phase IV.



Phase IVa.



Phase IVa with the stock hood mounted A2 horn.  The funny thing was, unless the railroad that ordered it specified otherwise this was where the horn was.  To top it off, it was only on the forward hood.  Most railroads changed and/or relocated the horns to the top of the cab after delivery.

So much happening that I don't have much time to do anything.  I have fixed a few mesh issues, started on the stenciling inside the cab, and did some rebaking trying to get the look I'm after.
