Designed by GE in the late 1980's for Santa Fe as part of their "super fleet" of locos, the four-axle, high horsepower DASH 8-40BW is still in service today. Amtrak liked the design so much, they had the DASH 8-40BW modified to reflect their new generation of passenger diesels to a DASH 8-32BHW.
MSRP:
$139.95

Features:

  • HO Dual-Mode Decoder* which allows you to switch a locomotive from analog to digital mode and back again, without the typical speed differential. The Dual-Mode Decoder is also pre-programmed to match the last two digits of the locomotive's road number.
  • Realistic die-cast underframe
  • Standard cab or gull wing cab as per the prototype
  • Five-pole skewed armature motor with dual flywheels for optimum performance at all speeds
  • Directional lighting
  • Factory-equipped with AccuMate knuckle couplers
  • Painted crew figures
  • Separately-installed scale windshield wipers, metal grab irons and fine scale handrails
  • Highly detailed coupler cut bars
  • Multiple unit hoses and trainline hoses
  • Snowplow
  • Shock absorbers
  • Piping on trucks
  • Simulated ditch lights

    *To run your HO Dash 8-40BW or 8-32BHW locomotive on a standard analog layout you don't have to do anything; your locomotive will perform the same as all Atlas high quality locomotives, right out of the box.
