We understand customers who have received the recent run of Southern Pacific Ready to Roll® SD40R locomotives were not satisfied with the brake configuration and the flexicoil truck sideframes. Athearn® recognizes these concerns and will reproduce these shells with brake wheel only on the rear for the SP 7351, and will provide replacement high mount brake cylinder truck sideframes.

We will send an update to support these products on July 30th with further instructions and procedures to obtaining the new shell and truck sideframes for the listed qualified locomotives.
