The options as I see them and have planned for are to use a Proto 2000 GP20 chassis and sill.  Then add to it a Proto 2000 GP9III or GP18 hood and cab that matches the unit you choose.  While my model will be working a late 70’s to merger N&W/Southern layout it will more than likely be painted black with the large NW.  I plan on using Plano grilles on the long hood and Cannon fans.
