Kato 376617 EMD SD40-2 Mid Production SF
One of the best-selling EMD locos ever built, over 3,000 SD40-2s were sold in the US and Canada. During production, some prototype features were changed. These ready-to-run models are based on mid-production units.
Like the prototype, these locos incorporate functioning ditch lights which can be switched between alternating (flashing) and steady lighting modes in DC (for DCC operation, ditch lights can be synchronized with horn or bell functions by installing an 8-pin sound decoder, sold separately).
The models also come with all details and handrails installed, golden white LED headlights and illuminated, printed number boards. They feature DCC-friendly construction with a 1.1" 28mm speaker housing in the fuel tank.
In early 1988, Santa Fe began relocating the headlights on its power from above the cab windows to the nose in an attempt to reduce glare reflected into the cab during foggy or blizzard conditions. This made the Mid Production Santa Fe SD40-2s (and their descendants in the BNSF) different in form to their cousins. Over the years, other changes were made, including the migration of the airhorn further away from the cab and the installation of air conditioners to make the operation of their SD40-2s a more pleasant experience for the crew.
