    It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.

    Can't find any photos that'd suit what you want. Just came up with this information...

    Information on the EMD 645 (because I just know that'll be your next question )

    I know this doesn't answer your original question, but there are models of both of those engines out there. Guessing you are looking to model said SW9 with its hood off. Should be a cool little model if so.
