Kato N Scale: ALCO PA-1 - DCC-Ready - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 'Warbonnet'
ALCO's beautiful PA-1 is one of America's most famous locomotives. It was ALCO's entry into the passenger train diesel craze, competing directly with the E-Units from EMD.
All of these locomotives feature a DCC-friendly mechanism, allowing for simple "drop-in" installation of decoder for hobbyists operating with digital control. Our famous five-pole motor with dual brass flywheels and equipped with frictionless trucks with blackened metal wheels powers these locomotives. These units are equipped with fully-automatic magnetic knuckle couplers, with optional long shank couplers included.
