ILSX SD40-3 1340

Another beautiful engine has been assigned to the Skally Line. ILSX SD40-3 1340 has been paired up with sister ILSX 1341 for hauling loaded sand trains to the BNSF interchange in Hinckley. Tiller Corp. in North Branch is loading out covered hopper loads of sand headed for a North Dakota fracking operation. New power is always a welcome sight on the line.

This engine started out as a Kato Mid-Production SD40-2. The snow shields, air horn, bell and light housings are MbE. The wipers, cut levers, cab shades, mu hoses and air lines are BLMA. The fans, and lift rings are Trainworx. The Sinclair is by Sandro. The paint is Milwaukee Road Grey and Engine Black. The decals are Microscale.
