Sorry, they're not my models. Try contacting the guy who took the photos. His name is on the pictures. Maybe he can put you in touch with the modeler.

If they don't work for you, I'd suggest going to www.rrpicturearchives.net and www.railpictures.net finding a clear broadside view of the beastie and superimposing it over a similar picture of a GP9/18 to figure where to cut.
From what I read NS started with GP9s and GP18s so I'd start with those for a model. Proto2000 are probably the best bet for a starting point. They don't look too complex, mostly moving around and adding details as well as a lot of sheet styrene.

YEP, that's them. Did you kit bash those models or can you give us some info on finding them? I think that would be a very unique piece to have, maybe a few of them to help with the GEEPS like in the pics.
