Proto:87 Upgrade – Kato SD40-2

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.

  • HO Scale Kato SD40-2
  • NWSL 40″ P:87 1/2 axle wheels 37691-4
