2011 marked the 40th anniversary of Amtrak ? to commemorate this historic birthday, Amtrak has painted a number of its locomotives into a series of anniversary schemes, each taking design cues from a different paint and logo era from the railroad?s history. Directional headlights and tail lights on both the front and rear of the locomotive, allowing it to operate as both a standard pulling locomotive with double heading capability or a push-pull engine, whether oriented facing forward or back. Brand new coreless truck-motor drive paired with a super-heavy solid metal body mechanism; doubling the number of motors while increasing the traction potential and weight for new standard of running smoothness and pulling power. A unique "Phase II" homage paint scheme decorates this otherwise modern service locomotive, replicated down to the last detail in HO scale form. Comes with a pre-installed and tested two speaker ESU LokSound DCC System, programmed with genuine P42 sounds for operation on a DCC layout! Please note that as these units are built to order, they may need 1-2 weeks of assembly and preparation time before they are available to ship. The Genesis series of locomotives was designed by General Electric (GE) in response to a specification published by Amtrak and ultimately selected over a competing design presented by EMD.


These Analog non-DCC Versions not for use on DCC systems without a decoder due to the dual motor design. The P42 is a modern 4200 horsepower passenger locomotive used across the United States and Canada.
P42 locomotive #66 is painted in a phase II heritage scheme that marked the first use of the red, white, and blue stripes that has influenced every paint scheme since. The Genesis series are unique among current North American diesel-electric locomotives because of their low height.
Today they are used throughout the United States and often operated in a mixed consist of Phase IV and Phase V schemes. This locomotive release is unique compared to previous HO locomotives from Kato, USA in that it uses a brand new drive mechanism. Amtrak's P42 has replaced the EMD F40PH in revenue service and today they are used throughout the United States. These heritage locomotives have been seen in attendance at National Train Day celebrations as well as other train related festivities all across the country, and serve as a reminder of Amtrak?s long history as America?s railroad.


This height restriction allowed the locomotive to travel easily through low-profile tunnels in the Northeast Corridor.
The primary feature of the new mechanism is the use of coreless truck-mounted motors, putting all of the locomotive's mechanical components in the trucks. Since their introduction, they have had a number of physical revisions to improve the ease of maintenance and parts replacements, including a bolt-on fiberglass nose panel (replacing the original's solid metal which was difficult to repair or replace) and a new headlight bezel that is more rounded than the previous square versions. This makes it easy to lubricate, service, or replace parts while doubling up the available traction power from the heavier weight of the mechanism, made possible by the removal of any internal mechanical components.
