N GE AC4400CW Chicago & North Western #8804 w/ DCC Installed


The AC4400CW is an AC traction variation of its sister locomotive, the C44-9W “Dash 9.” Both locomotives share a similar body design, though the AC4400CW features a large box on the rear left of the operator cab where the inverter banks and traction circuitry can be found. These GE-built locomotives had bolsterless, low-weight HiAd trucks that were designed for improved traction, and were also equipped with a split cooling system to lower engineer temperatures and fuel consumption. The Chicago & Northwestern operated a number of these engines prior to their being added to the UP roster starting in the early 2000’s.

    Model features:
  • "Operation Lifesaver" paint scheme
  • Prototype details: Low Mount Numberboards and Beveled Cab design
  • Directional headlights with illuminated ditchlights and numberboards
  • Powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels

Each Kobo DCC locomotive set has been rigorously tested for performance and has had a Train Control Systems DCC board installed to be truly ready-to-run on DCC.

As they are built-to-order, please allow approximately 1 week lead time for delivery of any DCC equipped items.
