Per Dirk: "This model is being built from a variety of parts; including - parts from 2 - SD45 locos, 2 - GP38 hoods, 1 - SD45 cab/1 - SD 40 cab/1 - SD70Mac cab. And any hand built parts as needed, walk ways from box car roofs. It will run on a custom set of spliced "Siamese motor blocks", using 4 - SD70 power blocks as donors. That is 4 motors in one loco! OR twice the typical pulling power."
