Transkentucky Transportation B36-7 5815, a former Seaboard and CSX unit of the same number, is a real looker. We scanned this locomotive back in the summer of 2016, braving 104 degree F heat and 300% humidity to get the data. We’re making two versions of the TTI paint scheme because many of you asked for it. They are conditional announcements so please support them!

Transkentucky Transportation (ex-CSXT)
Ex-Seaboard/CSX units with late body – no anticlimber – plated class lights – large Salem air dryer – CSX/SBD fuel tank with correct filler/gauge locations – hinged drop step – CSX specific pilot with large plow – brass horn – CSX/SBD sunshade brackets – frame-mounted ditch lights.

The Rapido HO B36-7 features:

Incredible underframe detail including piping and a ridiculous number of separately-applied parts
Full cab interior, with correct orientation for standard or Southern locomotives
Dead straight metal side handrails with plastic stanchions
A crazy level of road-specific detail options, with different pilots, anticlimbers, plows, fuel tanks, air dryers, antennas, bell location, wind deflectors, headlight locations, air-conditioning units, beacons, different bodies, multiple nose and rear end styles, three versions of drop step, and so on.
