Great for Grain Trains

Valued for its large capacity, roof trough hatches, and center discharge gates, the 4427 PS-2 CD High-Side Covered Hopper is a favorite for hauling grain. These large hoppers have been in service across the continent hauling grain and other medium-density loads beginning in the 1960s, often in multi-car cuts or unit trains. Many are still seen in service during the fall harvest, as well as hauling DDG away from ethanol plants, 30 years after their construction.

* Perfect for Use with North American Ethanol & Modern Grain Series Models * Favorites for Hauling Grain & DDG * New Roadnames, Schemes & Roadnumbers * Factory-Installed Grab Irons & Details * Used from the 1960s to the Present * Fully Assembled * RP-25 Metal Wheels * Superb Paint & Lettering * Proto MAX(TM) Metal Knuckle Couplers

Coming Spring 2010 from KATO! The N Scale ES44AC GEVO

December 6, 2009

Prototype Information:

The ES (Evolution Series) of locomotives are built by GE Transportation Systems and designed to meet the U.S. EPA’s Tier 2 locomotive emissions standards that took effect in 2005. These Evolution Series locomotives are equipped with AC traction motors and are powered by a newly designed “GEVO-12” 12 cylinder engine that produces the same power as the 16 cylinder AC4400CW, but with fewer emissions and greater fuel economy. It also carries a redesigned air-to-air dual-fan heat exchanger, which gives it its distinct “oversized” radiator; a common spotting feature for these new locomotives.

KATO Model features:

  • Multiple body styles to reflect different “as delivered” railroad specifications
  • Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels
  • Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted numberboards
  • Illuminated ditch lights
  • Kato magnetic knuckle coupler
  • DCC Friendly mechanism ready for drop-in decoder installation

Visit White Rose Hobbies and search “KATO ES44” to see them all!  They will be available in Union Pacific and Canadian Pacific for the initial release!
