But wait, there's more. Black Widows that is.
Sunrise Enterprises was great.
Check out Shapeways, https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace/miniatures/trains/ for detail parts and other cool stuff.

I remember as a kid when we’d drive old US90 from Arizona to Texas on vacation seeing long trains being pulled by 8-10 SP hood units, with the occasional hobo riding up top or in an open box car. I thought at the time it took that many locos to move such a train, only to find out they had to start the trip with that many units to make up for the number of locos that would break down or overheat crossing the desert.
Train-watching kept many a little kid entertained during those long car trips before the interstates were built. Still keeps some of us big kids entertained.
