Kato 176-4367 N Chicago Burlington & Quincy EMD NW2 #9205

This is a Kato 176-4367 N Scale Chicago Burlington & Quincy EMD NW2 #9205. The EMD NW2 is a 1,000 horsepower yard switcher, its distinctive twin-stack profile and short radiator creating a distinctive silhouette. Perhaps ironic, considering its 1000 horsepower engine, the N in NW2 stood for nine hundred horsepower, with the W designating that it was a welded frame locomotive, instead of a cast frame. The CB&Q NW2s enjoyed a long life of use, not only in switching ya frame locomotive, instead of a cast frame. The CB&Q NW2s enjoyed a long life of use, not only in switching yards but also moving freight, and were a common sight on lightly-used branch lines. A common replacement on the NW2 were the type of smokestacks installed; the standard short stacks were too low and would often get smoke in the eyes of the operators, and as a result the CB&Q retrofitted its NW2s with taller, untapered stacks (slightly different from the conical long stacks seen on other NW2s).Equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.Features directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards.Sophisticated lightpiping keeps the visible cab interior free of lighting equipment.Interior cab can be populated with N scale figures from our N Yard Crew Day/Night set, #24-270.Locomotive is DCC friendly, able to take drop in decoders such as Digitrax DN123K3 or Train Control Systems K3D3.
