Scale Trains HO Scale: Rivet Counter - GE C39-8 - DCC Ready - Savage Alberta Railway Repaint

Introduced in 1984, the C39-8 maintained the clean contours of the long hood and rounded cab roof of the Dash-7 series but featured larger, angular radiator “wings” at the rear of the carbody, an angular low short hood, and a boxy dynamic brake and clean air compartment at the front of the long hood, which jutted above the cab roofline.
