Although Athearn has done another superior job in replicating motive power with this SDP45, I must admit that I am a bit let down to learn that this was the big announcement as their new release.
Being a model weathering enthusiast, it comes as a bit of a disappointment when I became aware that Athearn was ready to release a new edition to their locomotive fleet and it was to be a unit that has never been modeled before,  I was sincerely hoping for something more in the way of an upgraded SD40-2 or even an SD39. Kudos to all basement empire modelers who requested this one and to Athearn for yet another outstanding detailing job in the manufacturing of another EMD dinosaur.

Nonetheless, Thanks for the more to accurate break down on the life span of the SDP45 Mike.
The two DRGW Kato GP35's that I own are the best performing engines that I have ever owned. HO Scale DCC Adapter Board, Locomotive Can be use in other manufacture Locomotive convert to DCC Ready install.


With a total of 52 locomotives produced, the SDP45 has been among the top requested locomotives by modelers to Athearn. Modified and relegated to passenger service, the renowned SDP45 was not a very common locomotive and therefore realized a minimal life span in road service, edit: (on certain rail systems). But then this is coming from a guy who is intent on slinging weathering mediums on plastic or brass and is devoid of a passenger operating type layout. Basically I was referring to the life span of these units in Southern Pacific paint as passenger service power, I suppose I should have been more specific in my initial post. Usually on many forums, there is a recognizable difference between post text and signature quotes and such.
Kato made a very limited number of roadnames and they have been out of production for years. This is a surprise as I have not seen too many on E-Bay or any in local hobby shops in Connecticut, Massachusetts or Rhode Island.


Actually, I saw a variant of those lines in a book (Jack Reacher novel, IIRC) and it caused me to laugh quite heartily.
I believe I was merely expressing my thoughts of disappointment that instead of a passenger designated locomotive, I would have been more so pleased with the release of an upgraded version of an old workhorse like the SD40-2 or SD39.
And a company like Athearn is more responsive to the model railroad community so problems or teething pains are more likely to be addressed quickly and resolutely by them. Now, if I had to pick another engine that runs as good as my Kato GP35's and has equal detail, it would have to be my Atlas Conrail U23B's.
