N EMD E5A Red Band CB&Q #9912A w/ ESU LokSound DCC


The EMD E5 was built as a 2000 horsepower (despite the “E” in the name of the locomotive series originally referring to an “Eighteen hundred” horsepower engine specification) locomotive for passenger service specifically for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. The major difference between the E5 and its other early E-unit brothers was its stainless steel finish and distinctive fluting, specifically chosen to match the CB&Q’s corrugated passenger trains such as the California Zephyr, Nebraska Zephyr, and Silver Streak Zephyr. During the 60’s, the E5’s wore new red stripes to match the CB&Q’s updated color scheme at the time.

This Locomotive has an ESU LokSound DCC Sound board pre-installed to ensure the system is ready to run on your digitally operated system. Please allow for 1-2 weeks after ordering to build the set as it is built-to-order.
