      Yes!  Nice job Todd!  I thought it would take longer for someone to get it.  I'm adding it to an NW2 cause I can't leave anything stock!

      This is how Alco added a Dynamic brake and a boiler for steam heat to an RS 3.

      Called 'em Hammer heads:

      Craig, You are correct about the loco in the picture but there were a few other SW's with Dynamic brakes.  I was inspired by the SW's used by The Englewood Railway in Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Englewood_Railway

      Here is the parted finished and mounted on the NW2.  The fan is from a USAT GP30.

      Now I'm looking to add Air reservoirs like

      Maybe I'll paint a bit of Buttermilk with moss spores on the visors as well.

      I forgot about that operation up North that had dyno equipped SW's. Going for the full yellow paint job?

      Dynamics right next to the cab? I wonder how much heat they threw into the cab, especially on long downhill runs.

      Thanks Guys!

      No Craig, I'm sticking with the Guilford grey.  I'm printing a larger fuel tank now and working on a replacement front radiator grill.  As always, I'll share the parts on Thingiverse soon for anyone who wants them.  BTW Thingiverse has now added 3rd party printing services so those of you without a printer can click "Order This Printed" to get them printed for you.  I've pretended to buy a few things to see what the charges are and they seem reasonable.
