Description

Pre-Orders due by July 24th First built for Union Pacific in the late 1980's by General Electric, the DASH 8-40C diesel locomotives were identified by an enlarged exhaust stack and the mounting of the dynamic brake grids in a square-like unit behind the cab, which housed an enlarged equipment blower fan. These six-axle, 4,000 hp engines are still in service today in North America. The 4,000hp Dash 8-40CW was produced by General Electric between 1989 and 1993 as a follow-up to the successful Dash 8-40C locomotive. The most distinguishing feature of this model was the introduction of GE’s version of the wide-nose “North American Safety Cab.” This style of cab would become a common sight on railroads across the country. Four major railroads purchased the Dash 8-40CW in fairly large quantities, including Conrail, CSX, Santa Fe and Union Pacific. Most of these units are still in regular mainline and heavy-haul freight service today. Due to various mergers, they can also be seen operating for new owners Norfolk Southern and BNSF.   Features: Ditch lights (8-40CW only) Number boards, sand fill hatch, and marker lights where appropriate by railroad (8-40CW only) Realistic die-cast underframe Factory-equipped with AccuMate® knuckle couplers Coupler pocket designed to accept AccuMate® Proto-couplers Highly detailed coupler cut bars Multiple unit hoses and trainline hoses Five-pole skewed armature motor with dual flywheels for optimum performance at all speeds Separately-installed scale windshield wipers, metal grab irons and fine scale handrails Directional lighting Painted crew members Snowplow and piping on trucks Recommended minimum radius: 22” Atlas Master™ Series Silver Additional Features: NMRA 8-pin plug for DCC (Decoder-ready)
