Smoke deflector on SAL GP7s w/ steam generators : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Does any one know how the smoke deflectors on SAL GP7s with steam generators was attached. It appears to be at the extreme front edge of the cab roof and follows the roof contour. Did it extend down the cab front or have supports from the rear. None of my picturse show this but it must have been pretty sturdy.

I appreciate any recollections or pictures if you can share.
