N EMD SD70M Norfolk Southern #2610 w/ DCC Installed


Introduced in 1992, EMD's SD70M was a 4000 horsepower locomotive that ran on EMD's new steerable truck design, known as the HTCR-II radial truck. This new truck allowed the locomotive to transfer its power to the rails more efficiently, which in turn enabled two SD70M locomotives to pull a train that would have taken three SD40-2s to pull. The NS was the second largest purchaser of the SD70M upon its introduction in 1992, buying nearly 70 locomotives to fill its rosters.

    Model Features:
  • Prototype details - Cab Headlight and Flared Radiator
  • Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels
  • Floating-axle shock-absorber design to maximize tracking and performance
  • Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted numberboards
  • 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.
