Cab Rear

Shot of the backwall of the cab. The cab rear wall/electrical cabinet (and front bulkhead) was taken from an undec Genesis SD45-2; the brass Sinclair antenna is by PSC, the horn is DW #326, the mirror is from DW set #353, and the plated-over cab vent is a thinned piece of .005" styrene. I really like the inside door handle, which was bent from .008" p-b wire, and mounted into shallow holes drilled into the backsides of the front and rear cab doors. Final product looks good IMHO, but man, they were more work than you'd imagine! Still, I think they're worth it, and any future Cannonized EMDs will get them. That's the plan, anyway...
