Ok, aside from the wonky cab...how do they run? Anything else not right? I haven't seen one in person and living in middle of nowhere I rarely have a chance to fawn over new products in person but replacing a cab and touchup painting is not above my skill level.
Not sure on how they run (I don't have any Intermountain anything) but the ditch lights are poorly designed. They are far too dull, especially when compared to the headlights and lighted numberboards. It's probably a resistor issue, but I'm not sure.

Long live the 251!
I do not have any of the Intermountain SD40-2's but I own two Canadian Pacific ES44AC's. The units run quite well. However the detail is poor and so is the quality control. I had to spend over $100 dollars in detail parts and extensive painting and decaling to make a usable model.
Although a bit on the light side the SD40-2w runs really nice.Even the wonky cab at 3 ft. is easy to live with. Not good ditch lights ,but they work.I'd be surprised with all the problems with manufactures that folks find it's a wonder they have sales. I bought the SD40-2w because the canucks are getting all the good stuff lately and I like the colors . Now if that is'nt a reason to buy a model. As I model the WP (4 axel power) I did'nt really need the model but it's a keeper.
i have 2 SD40-2w CN, and i have changed one cab for install a confortcab wide cn by detail associated. my future project is installing a classified light functional directly on dcc function . and later i probably buy 2others sd40-2w to combined together and made a modification on dcc .
