ScaleTrains HO Scale: Rivet Counter - EMD SD45 - DCC & Sound - Norfolk & Western 'Pevler Blue'

With countless railroad, road number, and era specific details, the Rivet Counter HO Scale SD45 is the definitive model of this ground-breaking high horsepower locomotive. First built in 1966, the SD45 served numerous Class I railroads and eventually secondhand owners and shortlines. While no longer used by Class 1 railroads, some SD45s and SD45 carbodies remain in service today with shortlines and regionals.
