Preview
Hi-Tech Details makes many parts to detail particular diesel locomotives of specific railroads. This injection-molded set of lift lugs are for Santa Fe E and F units.

AT&SF Frontlift Lugs E & F Units
Santa Fe added these lugs to their EMD E- and F-units. Hi-Tech Details packages two pairs of these lugs in a plastic bag stapled onto an eye-catching fuchsia card label with black printing.

Two lugs are attached to sprues and crisply molded in gray styrene. One will need a small bit to drill into one's locomotive to mount them.

Instructions and painting
None. HTD writes on the back of the card to See prototype photos for exact placement.

Conclusion
Santa Fe modelers of the E- and F-unit era can bring their models ever closer to authenticity and accuracy with these sharp parts. Happily recommended.

Our Thanks to Hi-Tech Details who provided this model for review! Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on RailRoadModeling.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
