Atlas SD35 #7416...
Part of an order of SD35s (7400-7419) this unit was built in August 1964 and was delivered in B&O blue. It was painted into
Chessie at an unknown time. SD35s, along with SD40s and SD40-2s usually handled heavy hauling roles, like coal trains and helper
service, around the system.
My model came decorated for Chessie, but was unlettered or numbered. I added the "B&O"
and "7416" on the
cab. To make the Atlas unit
more correct I added a decal for the slotted
battery box and painted the ends of the uncoupling levers yellow. Other
than that I just swapped the couplers with Kaydees
and weathered it.
