Images of my new out-of-the-box stock HO scale Athearn Genesis MP15AC without any modifications. The loco was missing a lift ring on the right-hand side of the hood ahead of the engineer's side of the cab -- you can see a hole where the part should be, easy enough to replace with a Detail Associates part. Also pictured is the Cannon & Company etched brass step set SS-2025 that will eventually be installed.
For more than 25-years I've wanted a high-quality HO scale plastic MP15AC as opposed to overpriced brass models, i.e. OMI. Finally we have one and it's a winner!
