N EMD SD70M Union Pacific "Flag" #4848 w/ DCC Installed

$160.00

Introduced in 1992, EMD’s SD70M was a 4000 horsepower locomotive that rode 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 SD70 series locomotives to pull a train that would have taken three SD40-2s to pull. Union Pacific was the biggest purchaser of SD70M units when they were introduced, buying more than 1400 individual locomotives, one of the largest locomotive batch purchases in history.

    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.
