YEAH! I'm going to model the Union Pacific U36B! But..., I need a detail kit:
BUT I REALLY!!! NEED SOME HANDRAILS. FOR THE SIDE EQIUPMENT BOXES ARE ON THE HANDRAILS, AND IT DIDN'T COME WITH ANY! So until then, my cab sides are uneven, and have two HUGE holes for the special hand rails on the side... Sad

Although there were no UP U36B's...
Smokey Valley sells handrail kits for U36B's. You could probably get away with the everday details, MU Hoses, Scale Brake Hoses, UP Snow Plow, Rotary Beacons...
Hi-Tech Details sells a lot of GE detail parts...

Thanks for the link GG, but they sell cabs, and stuff, but none of which I need. I accually need a U-Boat horn, the one I have has a horn hole, but no horn. I checked Smokey Valley, yup, they had the part I needed  Grin.
Now to look around the web for some UP detail kits... Oh, and a rotary beacon.

There is no "U-Boat horn." The average horn was a Nathan or Leslie 3 Chime, 2 back and 1 forward.

Great, know all I need is to know this answer:
Did Union Pacific ever run on an ATSF-BNSF mainline?

Smokey Valley Models use to make hand rail kits for many diesels. I think I have the right manufacturer. THey are brass and wire with the correct stanchions for the application. Better have some patience when assembling..........

BTW, A U-Boat is a product of General Electric. The Alcos were noted for laying out more smoke than a Big-Boy on Sherman Grade
