HO Scale KATO C44-9W Union Pacific Road #9632 DCC Ready Item #37-6632
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.
Precisely engineered weight distribution for more pulling power on steep grades and long trains
Lighted ditch lights in the high mount position for SP and UP (ex-SP) units
Prototypical Late Hi-Adhesion trucks
DCC and Sound friendly construction with a speaker housing in the fuel tank and standard 8 pin DCC plug
