I've been working on building ILSX 3109 for use on the Skally Line. This locomotive was in service at the grain elevator in Holloway, MN prior to me "transferring" it. I started with a Kato UP SD40, stripped the decals off, added BLMA fans, cut levers, MU hoses, cab shades and an Atlas plow. I added the decals and some paint, shot it with some dullcoat and added a MRC 1806 sound decoder (soooo cool). Here is a photo by Alec Holmes taken at the Northtown shops to see what I was shooting for. I do need to add the ILSX lettering, but I think it may get re-lettered for the SCXY.
