I lived in Northern California for many years and he SP Geeps were on the rails there every day. One of my favorite locos. Your Geep is a nice depiction of a specific era in SP railroading.

Wow great looking engine. The weathering is fantastic. Question? Did the SP have the extra big round head light on the top of each end? I've now looked at out West railroads much accept for Rio Grande.

Doug: Yes, the SP fitted these style of Pyle National signal lights on both ends untill they were removed during many of the renumbering/rebuilding work that SP put these units through. They were mainly used on some of the earlier geeps and SDs, but were subsequently removed due to ongoing maintanence problems.

Thanks for your kind words guys :)

All the best,
Gavin

Love those ashcan lights. I think they were mostly used on commuter service.
