I have been doing some quick research on the Reading SD-45s. I have an opportunity to purchase one. I already have one Bachmann Spectrum SD-45 #7603. The second I can purchase for a price I canít refuse is also 7603. There is an outside chance I could get 7602.

In looking at a couple of websites I only found roster numbers from 7600 to 7605. Did Reading only have six units? Also did they MU them together or with other locomotives?

Tom,

According to Dale Woodland's RDG Diesels Vol. 2 the RDG had 5 SD-45's #'s 7600 to 7604.

Photo's in the book show them to be mu'ed with other road power, both EMD and non EMD.

An excellent book for your research library if you desire to purchase one. If you would like me to scan one of the photo's and send it to you, I would be glad to assist.
