I’ve upgraded Kato SD40-2 with Proto:87 wheelsets. I made a video (probably too long) as a reference for anyone who wanted to try it themselves. Although I’d never done it before, it was quite easy, I spent about an hour on the project.
Bill of Materials
- HO Scale Kato SD40-2
- NWSL 40″ P:87 1/2 axle wheels 37691-4
- Small flat tip screw driver
- Small Phillips screw driver
- Needle nose pliers

Hi Jim. I have a small tripod that I erect directly in front of me on the workbench. It allows me to see what I’m recording and also is a good angle to keep my hands from obscuring the shot.
Greg, when you shot this video, where did you mount the video camera?
