Athearn GENESIS G2 HO | Dash 9-40C, NS #8820

[ATHG31501] DCC & Sound

The last stand of the standard cabs for Norfolk Southern was the Dash 9-40C. With the completion of this order for 125 units from GE, all subsequent orders were mandated by the FRA to be built with the wide safety cab. These units are offered in the Thoroughbred paint scheme for operations up to 2018, when the Dash 9-40C units were the first to be used as cores for the AC44C6M rebuild program at NS’s Juniata facility and at GE in both Erie and Fort Worth.

The Chicago & Northwestern RR Dash 9-44CW locomotives were the first production order of Dash 9s from GE with delivery beginning in late 1993. C&NW initially came without A/C units and a roof vent but were later modified to have A/C. Our models depict the As-Delivered configuration for the C&NW modelers who depict this great railroad right up to the C&NW/UP merger.

Athearn GENESIS G2 HO | Dash 9-44CW, UP #9719

[ATHG31523] DC standard / DCC Ready 21-pin socket

One of Union Pacific’s hallmarks is their eclectic collection of motive power. However, the venerable Dash 9 of the time was ordered in few numbers by the UP - only 40 to be exact. Here we have 4 of those examples depicted late in their careers; repainted “lightning stripe” scheme, yellow frame stripe and wings on the nose. These unique repaints have many nuances; chiefly, they do not feature the American flag on their flanks.

Apart from a few minor spotting features, BNSF 700-799 looked much the same as ATSF 600-699. The biggest difference, perhaps, was the large “BNSF” lettering on the hood, where “Santa Fe” used to reside. Opinions differed on the look, but no one could argue that the face of an iconic railroad had changed forever!

Athearn HO GENESIS | GP40-2L, CN #9433 

[ATHG65081]

DC with 21-pin NEM connector for DCC conversion

By the early 1970s, many first-generation diesels were reaching the end of their service lives. One of the most common replacement locomotives became the GP40-2. EMD began production of the 16-cylinder, turbocharged, 3000 horsepower engine in 1972. These locomotives were developed for service where higher horsepower and faster service were preferable. A major feature for the GP40-2 was the introduction of the "dash 2" modular electrical cabinet. For more than 40 years, the GP40-2 has worked main line freights, locals, switching jobs, yard service, and helper service. Many remain in service today.

Athearn GENESIS G2 HO | SD60M Tri-Clops, UP #6237

[ATHG75515]

$249.98 USD

In 1984, EMD unveiled the first four SD60 demonstrator locomotives. The SD60 was equipped with a 3,800 horsepower, 16 cylinder, turbocharged 710G3A prime mover. Five years later, EMD began offering the SD60 with the wide nose “safety” cab with the infamous “Tri-Clops” 3-piece windshield, thus creating the SD60M. Union Pacific was the first road to order these new SD60M locomotives followed by Burlington Northern and SOO Line. BN’s SD60M locomotives went on to the merged BNSF while the SOO Line units went to Canadian Pacific. Some of the BNSF units found more mileage with Norfolk Southern and in lease service for CEFX.

In 1989, Soo Line purchased 5 SD60M’s from EMD, numbered 6058-6062. They were all painted in this attractive and bright “Candy Apple” red scheme, and could be seen all over the system. Soo was known to run these as a single unit in hot-shot TOFC trains as in the image below. After Soo Line was folded into the CP Rail System, these units remained in Soo colors for a long while before finally being repainted in CP Rail colors.

Athearn GENESIS HO | GP9, CPR #8508 (multimark)

[ATHG82222] DC / DCC ready 21-pin NEM connector

In 1949, EMD introduced the GP7. The basic design followed most diesel switchers with the addition of a short hood instead of an end-cab. The hoods were also full height to better accommodate the diesel engine and mechanical and electrical components.

In 1954 EMD upgraded the GP7 to become the 1,750 horsepower GP9. Externally, the first GP9s were virtually unchanged from the last GP7s. Later versions would include different louver arrangements and the last ones would come without the frame skirting. The GP9 was available with all of the fuel tank, steam generator, and dynamic brake options as the GP7, including “torpedo tube” air tanks mounted on the roof.
