Yes, that is it. It looks like a F40PH and a PRR T1 got drunk and had a 1 night stand.

Also, here is some more info:

Drawings are available on one of the links

It certainly would be.... I will have to dig around and see what trains it pulled, I think it pulled the Juice train a few times....

According to Wikipedia, :blob: This thing had 10,000 HP, what a beast!

If only I had several thousand dollars to throw away...

EDIT: I know it's not a real engine, but it still struck me as interesting...

How's this for an oddity? ;) Did this up yesterday, still needs to be repainted.  :)

EDIT- I just got creative and thought up its history. My fictional Rocky Mountain Rail decided to make arebuild after an SD40-2T and an F40PH collided. RMR had a wrecked SW1500 in the backshops so they shortened the wrecked SD40-2T long hood and took the F40PH's cab and put them on the SW1500 body. I know, creative, i was bored. :)

*Edit: fixed drawing was posted. Changed a few things...

Piggy backing on your F40 with the Munnel Totor Hood and SW frame, I did this up a couple years ago off of Michael Eby's drawings from Trainiax. The Story behind this one was that some South American Mining Company wanted some updated power to assist in their operations, but did not have the curves to handle full sized Tunnel Motors, so the radiator equipment of a couple Tunnel Motors were grafted onto the rear of GP38-2s and GP40-2s by NREX. Eventually, I'll get around to painting it into something...  :cheers:

Thats a neat tunnel motor ALCOHolic. I like doing the same thing with those drawings. :) I got the idea to make the FW45-2T from a post earlier in this thread. It was an (I think) SD40-2 body and frame with a C44-9W or AC4400CW Cab. It actually looked pretty cool.  O0

Kinda looks like a GP15 on steroids..... quite plausible. Baby T motor?

Just a point, the air handling section from a T motor is longer than the regular end of a SD40/GP38, so maybe the butt end should look like a SDP35... the end of the hood close to where the handrails should be, and add a big anti climber with a walk way on top.... also maybe the vertical stairs  on the rear like the SD40T-2 / SD45T-2.....just an idea.

Ahh yeah. Looks like that Alco Diesel Hydraulic SP wanted. Another flop of a project.

I had totally forgotten that Alco had built these beasties. I came across the pics while looking at the progress of the restoration of SP 9010.

I know I posted first progress of the FW45-2T oddity a few weeks ago, but here it is all finished up ready for Christmas:).  I "painted" it with Sharpies :imwithstupid: and used ornaments for the tree and wreath :D.
