Kato N 1765401 EMD E5A, Chicago Burlington and Quincy "Silver Speed" #9910A

The EMD E5 was built as a 2000 horsepower (despite the "E" in the name of the locomotive series originally referring to an "Eighteen hundred" horsepower engine specification) locomotive for passenger service specifically for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. As of 2012 "Silver Pilot" is the last surviving E5 unit, residing at the Illinois Railways Museum in Union, IL.

Directional Amber LED headlights and illuminated, pre-printed numberboards.
De-skirted trucks for a late type appearance, appropriate for operation with both the Silver Streak Zephyr as well as the California Zephyr.
DCC friendly mechanism coupled to a powerful 5-pole motor.
Comes with an optional coupler clip and removable front cowling to portray the locomotive with either an exposed or hidden coupler housing.
