N EMD SD70M Norfolk Southern #2610 w/ DCC Installed
Introduced in 1992, EMD's 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 three SD40-2s to pull. The NS was the second largest purchaser of the SD70M upon its introduction in 1992, buying nearly 70 locomotives to fill its rosters.
Each Kobo DCC locomotive set has been rigorously tested for performance and has had a Train Control Systems DCC board installed to be truly ready-to-run on DCC.
