This is MTS 1980 a SD19-M (rebuilt SD-9).The road number comes from the fact that I bought the original Athearn blue box loco in January 1980 as a birthday present for me.The are some construction picture further back in this thread.It has been so long since I took it apart for rebuilding I'have misplaced the end railings.

This is the fifth and final rebuild (only things left from the original loco are the body shell and frame) I have worn out 3 motors and 5 trucks. Eek

MTS = Midwestern Trainsportation Systems the parent company of the Grande Valley Railway.MTS 1980 is the first lease unit in this new scheme.
Different view showing roof top detail.Sure wish I could figure out what happened to the end railings. Sad
