More information on the prototype [[IAIS 403]]

IAIS GP10 403 is a Phase 3 GP10, so I started with a P2K Phase 3 GP9. It's pretty straightforward as far as Paducah conversions go, with just the typical changes necessary for all Paducah Geeps:
* I had a P2K GP20 cab on hand that I'd started to modify before Cascade & Pacific came out with their chop-nose kit, so I used it this time instead of the C&P parts. The one-piece GP20 windshield was replaced with a windshield from an Athearn U30C. I used the C&P short hood with Pyle headlight.
* Side-skirt alterations usually done for Paducah Geeps aren't necessary for 403. It's skirts match the P2K model.
* Added Custom Finishing #260 Horst air filter with lower portion of hoods removed.
* Added DW #176, a hood-side mounted bell, then added an air activation line.
* Made roof access doors for the long hood out of styrene cut to 68"x17". Added tie-down bolts along outer edge from NBW castings I had on hand.
* Other details were added as listed in the Detail Parts document located under Iowa Interstate/Locomotives.
