t seemed for years you couldn’t find a railroad or a train without an SD40-2. Yet even amongst the thousands of locomotives, there were a few unique standouts. This release captures some of those special units from the 1970s to the present day. From Burlington Northern comes the 1876 Bicentennial locomotive and the 8002 – the first unit to be painted in the experimental high-visibility “tiger stripe” scheme. Louisville and Indiana and Savage Leasing contribute two amazing contemporary tributes to our veterans. From Norfolk Southern, a special paint scheme to commemorate a shipping line that actually lasted for several years before fading to black. And last but certainly not least, Union Pacific’s “Desert Victory” tribute to it’s own employees serving the the Gulf War. We’re offering these special locomotives in both full-featured powered and nonpowered units for those who may simply want a display piece for their collection. These locomotives have also been improved with our kinematic pilots and feature road specific details including correct trucks for the Norfolk Southern unit. Powered units include full LEGACY and Bluetooth control, RailSounds, smoke and all the other high-end features you’ve come to expect from a LEGACY diesel. Don’t miss this opportunity to add something truly unique and special to your roster!
