244-engine RSC-2 and RS-2 from 1946 to 1950. These dependable road switchers eventually went to work on a number of well-kn own railroads thro ughout North America. This spring, K ATO Precision Railroad Models will release N scale reproductions of these locomotives for you to put to work on your railroad. Our accurately scaled recreat i on of the six-axle RSC-2 and four-axle RS-2 will deliver traditional KATO d etail and craftsman ship to tran sition era N scale modelers around the world. Each model will be equipped with the powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels and our own semi-automatic KATO knuckle coupler. The split metal chassis should be "DCC-friendly," allowing for the easy removal/replacement of the light board for digital control operation. The RSC-2 models will all feature the air-co oled version exhaust stack and friction-bearing journals on the trucks. The stack on the RS-2 models will be replicated as air cooled or water cooled and the truck axle bearings as friction or roller, depending on the roadname. Please
