Norfolk Southern Office Car Special kitbash

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine here has finished up, more or less, his kitbash of the Norfolk Southern's office car train as it would have been seen in 1998.  He used Walthers passenger cars as cores and either replaced the sides with laser cut styrene sides or replaced the window 'strip' in those that needed to keep their riveted sides.  It's a darned impressive train as it eases by in this video.

What's the slug (#9723) that's visible after the train passes? I can't find it on Norfolk Southern roster sites.

The only photo I can find that looks close is 9734 which is a rebuilt GP18, whatever the model is it looks nice

9723 was one of a series of RP-E4D slugs (26 on the roster in 1998 - in the range 9714-9741) built between 1984 and 1988 on GP9 or GP18 cores. 9723 was built in April 1986 on a GP18 core and is currently numbered 923. The rest have also been renumbered in the 9xx series.
