The Rail Power shell has the oil bath filter. PC SD-38 had paper filters.
The SD-38s that I built I used the paper filter box cut fron athearn GP-38-2
dynamic brake hatch, did some splicing and violla.
For handrails I used Rail Detail handrail kits. These kits have .019
brass wire for the railings and use athearn type stanchions. I would think
that Smokey Valley SD-40 handrails would work as well since the SD-38 and
SD-40 are the same length.
Add the Sinclair antannae, lift rings, etc and you got it. This is a
pretty easy kitbash.
BTW- you will have to modify the trucks(I'm assuming you're using athearn).
The Rail Power instructions cover this.
