Need help from CSX guys- Cab roof AC boxes on older loco rebuilds
Posted by Vess1 on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 8:52 PM

   Hey guys.   I'm working on updating/detailing an HO model of a CSX SD60 that appears to have received some updates along with new paint and logos this year.  It also has what I believe are new AC units installed on top of the cab but from the only two pics I've got to go by, you can only see one of them and it's at considerable distance.   Does anybody have pics of these things or know who makes the real ones for CSX so I can get an idea of what they look like and rough size and shape?  Also need to know how they're positions.  The prototype just got them installed this year.   They're not the same as what BNSF uses.  

  Bonus question...  Would the antenna array bars (?) CSX uses on the sloped sides of the cab roof, (recently installed) on an SD60 be the same as what they use on a new ET44?   They look the same but may be dimensionally different.    Thanks for any help in advance.

In the 2nd pic it is the 3rd locomotive back. I need a good photo and/or dimensions of what is on the cab roof of that one or any other one that has similar equipment. Neither of those pics is very helpful other than showing that it has been updated. That is the version I want to make my model into. Thanks.
