dash to it!

The Early Production version of the locomotive first rolled onto the rails in January of 1972, and many of those original units are still in service today. Now, KATO Precision Railroad Models will recreate the Early Production version of the SD40-2 in N scale. These models will be equipped with the world-renowned dual brass flywheel motor and frictionless, all-wheel electrical pickup trucks KATO is famous for. The split, all-lJIetal chassis provides plenty of weight for powerful tractive effort and will be designed for the easy installation of a Dee decoder. The semi-a utomatic K A TO c ouplers, directional lighting and accurate recreation of prototype paint schemes will further enhance the beauty of the beasts. Seven popular liveries will be recreated, including the versatile EMD Leasing. Two styles of undecorated models will also be released - with and without dynamic brakes. These fixed-production models will be delivered to hobby shops worldwide in NovemberlDecember 1999. The K ATO SD40-2, Early Production version in N scale . . .
