Hi Frank, never posted here before, however I will take a stab as I have a
kato 70 and 90MAC HO and am a bit of a fan. I could be wrong (and feel free
to tell me so) but I think what you are looking at there is not actualy a
square light set but a window on a door on the front of the loco, this could
be confusing for some as some versions of SDMAC (depending on livery) for
exmple, Conrail has its lightset not front centre on their SD70MAC but much
lower same level as the walkway at the foot of the front handrail whera's
others have the lightset front top centre of the nose and just to the
imediate left side from facing front on the loco there is a small window on
a door I beleive.
Hope this has helped.
So when the conductor takes a really nasty dump, after eating those bad boy
enchiladas, he can look first to be sure he doesn't knock the brakeman over the
front railing when he opens the nose door so the wind will blow the fragrance
onto the unsuspecting engineer who's sleeping in the cab. Or not.
