Default Livonia, Avon and Lakeville 418 dymamic breaks?

Anyone know if the 418 has dynamic brakes currently? I'm trying to model it and I can't until I figure it out! Also, sorry for the misspelling on the thread title!

There is no way it has dynamic breaks.
Dynamic brakes, however...

Thanks for pointing that out! I previewed it and I thought something didn't look quite right!

There is a nice shot of it leading a train in the January Railpace. Unfortunately, it's a bit nosy and you can't see the area behind the cab. Let me see if I can try another route-- digging up history and finding a shot of it in a former life.

Here is a link to a broad view. I honestly don't know how to tell whether an Alco has dynamics or not, but the only grid I see that appears extra is below the smokestack on the long hood. I -think- GE/Alco tended to put the dynamic brake cooling grid right behind the cab, as a rule, but I just can't say with certainty. The one behind the cab doesn't look like the typical dynamic grid, but then again, I can't think of a whole lot of things that would be there requiring a cooling vent, either.

Hope this helps in some fashion, and if anyone can provide more info on spotting features here, please feel free to share.

He is a good friend of mine. I asked him and he didn't know. I did find out that it does not though. Neither does 425 or 420. BH 422 does.
