Bachmann HO Scale: Siemens ALC-42 Charger - DCC & Sound - Amtrak

This Bachmann HO Scale Siemens ALC-42 Charger with WowSound and DCC is based on the fleet of Amtrak road diesels delivered beginning in 2021. The prototype ALC-42 is based on the highly successful SC-44 Charger, the ALC-42 is designed specifically for long-distance, cross-country service on America's most scenic and storied routes, displaying an updated appearance with a new nose profile and cab door configuration.

Thanks to both Siemens and Amtrak, Bachmann's ALC-42 has been developed using original design documentation and employs prototype field recordings for maximum realism. Features include:

  • TCS WOWSound CD-quality 16-bit 44,100Hz decoder with Audio Assist(R) for easy configuration without CVs, and a Keep-Alive(R) device for uninterrupted operation, even over dirty track.
  • The WOWSound diesel-electric locomotive package includes an authentic horn, bell, prime mover, startup/shutdown, compressor, cooling fan, coupler close/release, brake release/application, crew alert, grade crossing quill, station announcements, and more.
  • It also includes dual flywheels, a can motor, E-Z Mate(R) knuckle couplers and RP-25 wheels for operation on Code 70 and larger rail.
