Here we have a Kato Burlington Northern SD40. This is an original blue case run from the 90's. Kato was getting better at painting their shells, but there still is some weird color sections, evidenced by the green side walls in the step wells and no window "frame" painted silver. Both of those were corrected. Looking at photos online showed this class of loco had the high mount brakes, so I swapped out the stock trucks for some. Other than that, just a general detailing. More pool power for the RR!
