ScaleTrains HO Scale: Operator Series - EMD SD45 - DCC & Sound - Pennsylvania Railroad

The SD45 was the “Big Block Chevy” of EMD’s “1966 Line” of locomotives. In the early 1960s, railroads were requiring more and more horsepower from locomotives to meet the demanding schedules of growing high-priority and intermodal (TOFC) traffic. This equated to faster acceleration and the ability to maintain higher speeds.
