Description
The EMD SD45 began production in late 1965 using General Motors' new 20-cylinder model 645E3 prime mover. The SD45's 20-cylinders meant it was extremely powerful, able to produce 3,600 horsepower, which was a significant reason so many railroads purchased the model. Sales for the SD45 took off rather quickly given EMD's stellar reputation as a locomotive builder through the mid-1960s. However, as railroads began to use the locomotive they began experiencing reliability issues. The 20-cylinder prime mover was experiencing teething issues and had a tendency to break crankshafts, naturally resulting in engine failures out on the road. While EMD soon fixed the problem many railroads were turned off of the locomotive after its initial problems and with the highly successful and reliable SD40 released in 1966 decided to just buy that model instead. In any event, the power the SD45 offered could not be denied.

I have a few models of the High Hood locomotives but they sit undecorated

High Hoods! I particularly like the old "Southern" black and white. Well done!

Awesome! Now we just need a map of western Virginia or (my preference) south central Kentucky so we can recreate the CNO&TP!
