Norfolk Southern SD70M #2592

Prototype Information:

  • Introduced in 1992, EMD SD70M was a 4000 horsepower locomotive that ran on EMD's new steerable truck design, known as the HTCR-II radial truck. This new truck allowed the locomotive to transfer its power to the rails more efficiently, which in turn enabled two SD70M locomotives to pull a train that would have taken 3 SD40-2's to pull. The DC brother of the SD70MAC, the SD70M was primarily put to work hauling coal trains due to its high pulling capacity.

 

Model Information:

  • These models will be equipped with all-wheel electrical pick-up and blackened metal wheels in trucks that replicate the HTCR Phase II trucks. The NS and UP versions will feature a Phase II Wide Cab and Flared Radiators.

 

Model Features:

  • Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels
  • Floating-axle shock-absorber design to maximize tracking and performance
  • Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted numberboards
  • Kato magnetic knuckle coupler
  • DCC Friendly mechanism ready for drop-in decoder installation
  • Drop in DCC compatible with the Digitrax DN163K1C, Digitrax DN163K1D or Train Control Systems K1D4-NC
