As a prototype, the SD40-2 was the most popular second-generation diesel with sales of over 3000 in the U.S. and more than 700 in Canada. There were many variations of this popular diesel because of the long production run.
The KATO HO SD40-2 Mid-Production features functioning ditch lights which can be switched between alternating (flashing) and steady lighting modes on-the-fly. You can toggle the alternating ditch lights as the locomotive approaches urban areas or road crossings on your layout, or elect simply to run them all the time, however you'd like to enjoy it.
All handrails and grab irons are factory installed, making the model ready to go out of the box.
Sound friendly construction with a speaker housing in the fuel tank.
Ditch lights can be synchronized with horn or bell functions with the installation of an 8-pin sound decoder.
For use on a DC powered HO scale train track. Can also be converted to run on a DCC HO scale train track using the appropriate 8-pin DCC decoder.
