The headliner of GE’s 1993 freight locomotive line was the 6 motor, 4400hp C44-9W “Dash 9.” Slightly longer than its predecessors at 73 feet, 2 inches, the C44-9W used a new HiAd, bolsterless low-weight truck that was designed for better grip on the rails no matter the weather. A split cooling system lowered engine temperatures and fuel consumption as well, granting these locomotives a longer operation life and lower overhead costs.
The Kato C44-9W Has been retooled from its original N scale incarnation; featuring separately molded handrails, new walkways with crisper detailing, new undercarriage and fuel tank detailing, high mounted ditch lights and a prototypically more accurate anti-climber, molded MU hoses, illuminated numberboards, prototypical late type Hi-Ad trucks, and a new Kato straight shank knuckle coupler for a more prototypical appearance. The Chicago & North Western railroad, long since incorporated into the Union Pacific, lives on to this day in the form of C44-9W #8646 and #8701, the last surviving locomotives still to bear their original Chicago & North Western colors. These two locomotives are a favorite of C&NW followers, and Kato is proud to announce their production in both N and HO Scales in a limited run to pay homage to these long-lasting locomotives.

In Service: 1954 – Present.
Primary Assignment: Yard and industrial switcher, one preserved unit.
By 1954, railroads were buying diesels as fast as EMD could build them, and customer demand for more powerful units carried over into the switcher market as well. With the introduction of the new 567C prime mover that year, EMD rolled out its new 1200-horsepower SW9/1200 model, which shared the same basic body (with minor variations) and power rating with its predecessor, the SW9 (which had a 567B prime mover). SW9/1200s were produced through 1966, when earlier GPs began taking over yard chores, but these later SW models have lead long lives, with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after “retirement” by the original owners.
