I just received a brass model of a GP-38 in N-Scale. I plan on
making it a PC unit, but I need a little more information. GP-38's (as
well as the -2's) used paper air filters instead of the older oil-bath
type found on previous EMD's. This isn't my main query, but it seems
that exhaust stack on the oil-bath filter equipped units consisted of a
single stack, typically ahead of the dynamic brake fan. GP-38's (the
ones with the paper filter) seem to have a different exhaust stack
set-up. I have the PC Power book and it seems to me that the
dynamic-brake equipped units had 2 exhaust stacks, one on either side of
the fan. I cannot be positive of this, nor do I know what type of stack
is utilized (short or tall). I do not know how it is set-up on
non-dynamic brake equipped units. My brass unit is a non-dynamic brake
equipped unit. On the roof is 4 exhaust stacks, the other two being
where the dynamic fan would be. The stacks are also rather tall like
something seen on a ICG rebuilt geep. My first impression is that this
is not correct for a PC GP-38. So, what is? What kind of stacks are
used on either unit (type and height)? Thanks in advance...
