My only concern is that what changes are made to alter the appearance to resemble its original look do not compromise the mechanical reliability of the loco.
Given Bernie Baker's significant support from both major and minor donors I have to believe that he has the knowledge and wisdom to do nothing that would sacrifice reliability. So many could not be wrong...
The major change proposed so far is the removal of the cab roof hump.
This just means people in the cab will hit their heads more often since the cab floor was raised.
Even Bernie is probably tall enough to have this problem.
The cab air conditioner outlets are on the cab desktop. not on the roof, (assuming CLP10 is the same as CLF1 which I inspected when it was new). So that won't be affected.
Nobody has mentioned the extra portholes on the angled "mansard" section of the roof yet.
It would look more convincing with these removed but they do provide better illumination in the engine room.
Changing the engine air intake grilles to the original pattern would help the appearance, particularly on the left side where the intakes are more or less the original size.
Since the diesel generator sets are no longer in place (as I understand), replacing the door at the rear wouldn't be hard.
