Kato USA P42 Amtrak® “Midnight Blue” #100 w/50th Anniversary Logo and Pre-Installed ESU LokSound, HO Scale
The General Electric P42 locomotive, also known as the "Genesis" locomotive, is a modern 4200 horsepower passenger locomotive used across the United States and Canada. Amtrak's P42 has replaced the EMD F40PH in revenue service and today they are used throughout the United States. 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.
Kato's HO scale model is equipped with ESU LokSound and decorated in the Amtrak 50th Anniversary logo.
