This is a brand new KATO "KOBO" N Scale EMD SDP40F Type IVb Locomotive with an ESU LOKSOUND 90861 Select Micro Sound DCC Decoder Pre-Installed by KATO in the BNSF Maersk paint scheme. The locomotive number is 6976. The EMD SDP40F was Amtrak's first, official, built to order locomotive (previously they had operated using second hand equipment, such as E8's, F7's and even GG1's).A need for new and more reliable equipment spurred the development of the SDP40F. Based on the framework of the SD40-2, the SDP40F was geared for speed, with a top operational velocity of 100 mph and a pair of steam generators to supply heat and hot water for the passenger trains it would pull, such as the ex-Santa Fe "El Capitan" and "Super chief" (renamed the "Southwest Chief" in its combined state). A number of SDP40F's were traded over to the Santa Fe Railway in 1984 where they were modified and repainted into the distinctive warbonnet scheme and maintained in service for nearly 15 years. All locomotives will be equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers. Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards. A great addition for any N scale enthusiast, and makes a wonderful gift! However, we may not be able to identify all defects. Please visit us at: Hobby Time Hobby Shop.
