N EMD NW2 Northern Pacific #106 w/ DCC Installed


The EMD NW2 is a 1,000 horsepower yard switcher, its distinctive twin-stack profile and short radiator creating a distinctive silhouette. Perhaps ironic, considering its 1000 horsepower engine, the N in NW2 stood for nine hundred horsepower, with the W designating that it was a welded frame locomotive, instead of a cast frame. The Northern Pacific owned 6 of these locomotives as originally purchased from EMD, using them in switching service for two decades before they eventually were moved into the BN fleet.

  • Equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.
  • Features directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards.
  • Sophisticated lightpiping keeps the visible cab interior free of lighting equipment.
  • Interior cab can be populated with N scale figures from our N Yard Crew Day/Night set, #24-270

This locomotive has been fitted with a Train Control Systems K3D3 DCC board and has been rigorously tested to ensure ready-to-run performance on your DCC system. Please allow 1-2 weeks additional delivery time on DCC equipped units as they are hand-assembled after your order is placed by an in-house Kato technician.
