Did it any way. I went to one of the LHS's to get a book, and some detail parts for my Blue Box GP-35. Well this one did not have the detail parts but they did have a really nice RTR Athearn GP-35. I looked at it and then walked around, picked up a few packs of sectional track, went back to look at the GP-35 again, looked for a kit to build, back and forth, back and forth.
So now i have a new GP-35 and several packs of track. It was like a moth to a flame. It just drew me in and away I went.
So, any one know if a sound decoder will fit in the GP-35?
In comparing it to the old Blue Box, not even close. So much better detail, just a lot better product. Yet, it is 5 times what I paid for my old Blue Box.
