This locomotive kit comes with 3D printed parts for the body, fuel tank, and larger details. The handrails and some of the finer parts are rendered in etched brass. Wire, a large weight, and window glass material are also included. The motor, drivetrain and trucks come from an Atlas C628/C630 (not included). Visit the Briggs Models website for more information or to purchase a kit.
These 6-axle diesel locomotives were built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between March 1969 and November 1972. All 10 examples of this locomotive were built for the Milwaukee Road, who wanted a lightweight road-switcher to replace their fleet of aging Alco RSC-2s. The EMD SDL39 was essentially an experimental, lightweight version of the SD39 - employing the GP38's body and frame, but with the SD39's engine.
Grade: None (sorry, no, I'm not going to buy one of these and try to put it together)
