KATO SD40-2 "Early" & Mid-Production Variations

Click photo to see large view

Prototype Information —
More than 3,100 units were built by Electro-Motive Division (EMD) from January 1972 through February 1986.
  1. With 16 cylinders producing 3000hp, the SD40-2 road switcher was "practically the standard locomotive of the late 1970's and early 1980's."
  2. Perhaps the most recognizable feature of the SD40-2 is the wide "porch" at each end of the locomotive's walkway.
  3. Besides being an electronic"upgrade" of the preceding SD40, the Dash 2 was also equipped with the new hi-adhesion HTC trucks.
  4. Many of these locomotives are still in service today for the original purchasing railroad or a second-hand operator.
Model Features -

These models will have the appearance "after 1990", which will include ditch lights so the modeler can use them with their modern freights and in combination with other modern locos. Note the ditch lights on these units will be deck mounted, as was the prototype. They will also be equipped with anti-climbers.

  1. All locomotives will be equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.
  2. Locomotives will feature directional Golden White LED headlight and illuminated preprinted number boards.
  3. Lighted ditch lights Shock absorber construction for reliable performance
  4. Locomotives will be DCC friendly
  5. All 6 axles powered
  6. Low flange wheels

Fourth Release

Click photo for large view
Part #: Kat-176-8201A(2nd Run) - Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe (ATSF) - Road #: 5073 - SD40-2 Mid-version
About the Santa Fe SD40-2:

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 descendents 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 condinioners to make the operation of their SD40-2s a more pleasant experience for the crew.

Part #: Kat-176-8203A(2nd Run) - Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) - Road #: 6746 - SD40-2 Mid-version
About the BNSF SD40-2:

A common BNSF paint scheme, the "pumpkin" green and orange colors of the BNSF Heritage I paint scheme mirror the colors of the Great Northern Railroad. The original cross and circle company logo is displayed on the nose of the locomotive, indicative of the Heritage I coloration (Heritage II paint schemes using a "cigar band" logo reminiscent of the ATSF logo or a newer, more modern BNSF logo on the Heritage III).

First Release Below
Click photo to see large view
The Burlington Northern (BN) amassed a fleet of 827 SD40-2's. They started out hauling coal trains out of Wyoming's Powder River Basin and then started moving transcontinental freight between the West Coast and the Midwest. The CN - IC Repaint has generated interest from both the Canadian modelers and the U.S. modelers because of the IC (Illinois Central) markings on a CN locomotive. Built originally for the Burlington Northern, they were later purchased by the Illinois Central and are now owned by the Canadian National. They are used with other CN power on all types of freight service and are occasionally used in pool service with other roads.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
