    Thanks Rob and yes David you guessed it I gutted the SD70
    I was able to fit a decoder and speaker in it and now I'm looking into putting another speaker inside the cab it looks like it will fit with a little work

    Mike, if your other SD pulls adequately, then perhaps you can sell the motor to someone in need or start a scratch building project. Hmmmm...oh the possibilities.

    Hurts a LOT. Especially since that looks like one of the flag SD70s. The one I can't seem to find anywhere for love or money or blackmail

    That said, it's exactly the right way to do the job, so kudos to UP Mike for the good call.

    Bob, I have a UP flags shell for trade for another SD70 shell. I am looking for either a BNSF or ATSF.

    John - I am shellless for all SD70s, regrettably. And motorless.
