If you crave diesel beauty and brawn for your layout, you’ve come to the right place. These Scale E-8 Diesels have both. First the brawn: Each A Unit has two, flywheel-equipped, vertical motors. Thanks to the innovative PowerLink™ system, all motors are connected to one electronic reversing unit. The common E-Unit coordinates all motors so they all pull in the same direction at the same time, resulting in smooth and powerful engine performance.

Now for the beauty: Eight separate roof fans (driven by their own motor) rotate as the engine rides down the track. To further reproduce prototypical E-8 operation, these Scale engines come with removable winterization hatches that cover four of each unit’s eight operating fans(When the air is cold outside the E-8s don’t need to pull in as much air in to cool the motors).

Precise details like the detailed stainless steel screens down the length of each side and opening side doors add to the engine’s appearance. In addition to a headlight, each A Unit has an operating Mars light. The sweeping motion of the Mars light on the front of these A Units has been accurately reproduced -- the light oscillates back and forth as the engine barrels down the track.
