    This goes with my HO version. This is GP-9 built EMD in 1959. EMD being the Electro-Motive Division of GM. This is a high hood unit as were most of the early diesel freight locomotives. Makes for poor visibility as you can only see one side of the locomotive. It has 1750 horsepower, not a huge amount for a locomotive but this is mid sized unit meant for switching or road use.
    SP 3873 is at the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum in Campo, near San Diego.

      No not at all. I'd be more than happy for you to give me a telephone. Is there a contact number I can reach you on? Or if you would rather post an email address we can send a number through there instead of posting publically! Thank you,

      Becky. :-)

      P.s. My email address is rebeccagreen3@hotmail.co.uk
