Product Description

<p style="text-align:justify">The HO scale Canadian Comfort Cab -  basically a four window variant of the North American Safety Cab - is designed to be generically fitted to an existing HO scale locomotive shell. This is a kitbashing resource. Please use the 3D preview for pre-order evaluation. There are prototype variants with or without a left side rear door. This model lacks the left side rear door. Some of the detail parts will have to be added separately, some come pre-attached.</p><p style="text-align:justify">Prototype Information: The Canadian National Railway introduced this cab designed by input from railway employees in 1973 on a GP38-2(W) and on MLW M-420 locomotives. The locomotives equipped with such a cab were EMD GP38-2W, GP40-2W, SD40-2W. These all had the classic high control stand inside the cab. Later GMD's SD50F and SD60F (Cowl Units) for the CN featured a similar cab.</p><p style="text-align:justify">Finally GE installed similar cabs on BCR's and CN's later Dash-8 (CM40-8) and early Dash-9s (CW44-9) too. These units had desktop style control stands. Howeved the cabs on the cowl units (especially the C40-8M) had a shorter front hood probably providing the space needed for the side doors behind the cab.</p><p style="text-align:justify">By the way the Canadian Pacific Railway also had cowl units, the GMD SD40-2F (nicknamed "Red Barn"), which however had a different 3 window cab style.</p><p style="text-align:justify"><strong>Compatibility: NONE</strong>. Matching BCR or CN locomotives would be: EMD SD40-2W, GP40-2W, GP38-2W, early GE C44-9WL or the MLW M420W.<br />Please note: This is a beta product, it features generic HO-scale measurements and is not designed for any particular locomotive chassis/frame. It is a cab suitable for kitbashing or scratchbuilding. Many details are still missing. The door handles are very delicate, I inadvertedly broke one off during unpackaging.</p><p style="text-align:justify">If you find anything that could be improved, I would really appreciate any feedback.</p><p>Feedback from customers who purchased the Beta-product (thank you so much for your feedback):<br /><span style="font-size:12px">- I feel the front windows are too square - the corners should be round.</span><br /><span style="font-size:12px">- It looks to me like the bell is a bit undersize.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px">These improvements will most likely be included in the next update of the model.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:12px">Recent March 2016 Update: Added a few separate detail parts which are on a "sprue" inside the Cab. To separate the detail parts from the cab, please remove the whole sprue very carefully first, then separate the parts from the sprue. As the Frosted Ultra Detail material is very brittle, it is likely that smaller detail parts become disattached from the sprue during manufacturing. You will find them inside the bag.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px">Detailparts included:</span></p><ul><li><span style="font-size:12px">1 CN Snow Plow</span></li><li><span style="font-size:12px">1 pair of Snowshields</span></li><li><span style="font-size:12px">1 pair of square Filler Caps</span></li><li><span style="font-size:12px">1 pair of round Filler Caps</span></li><li><span style="font-size:12px">2 pairs of Ditchlights (v.3b 1 pair of high and 1 pair of low DLs)</span></li><li><span style="font-size:12px">2 p</span><span style="font-size:12px">c</span><span style="font-size:12px">s.
