Featured video: Posted 5/17 - A quick look at the two newly announced Sound Cards for the N&HO Sound Box System - EMD 1st Generation with Turbocharger and EMD 2nd Generation with Turbocharger! These cards are perfect for locomotives like the GP35, SD40-2, New SDP40F, F40PH, and more!
Last released in 2007, the SD40-2 at the time was a revolution for Kato’s HO design, featuring operating ditch lights (toggleable between steady and flashing modes on both DC and DCC!), fully assembled parts, and prototype specific details like the rear mounted horn and roof AC units on the Santa Fe models.
Today the SD40-2 Mid Production Version remains one of the gold standards of Kato HO Engineering, and is available again in Santa Fe and (coming soon in late June) Burlington Northern, in a paint scheme never before done on this model by Kato in HO! Both models feature ready-to-run detailing, DCC+Sound friendly chassis’ and Kato’s legendary motorized drive!
Purchase this new HO scale release at your local hobby store! The HO SD40-2 Mid is also be available with pre-installed DCC + ESU LokSound (built to order - contact your hobby shop to get yours)!
