Kato N Scale E5

The individual EMD E5A locomotive releases will have different printing patterns on the nose to reflect the general use versions of the CB&Q E5A locomotive, as well as have un-skirted trucks that reflect the locomotives later appearance when they would have been used to pull trains such as the California Zephyr.

The EMD E5 has a distinctive raised angular radiator grill arrangement on the roof that was specific for that locomotive

A special feature of the new Kato EMD E5A is that the front coupler cowling can be removed on both the skirted and un-skirted units in order to mount a Kato magnetic knuckle coupler this allows modelers to double head these locomotives when pulling longer trains such as the California Zephyr!


Another point of interest is that all E5s were custom built with stainless steel corrugated sides so as to match the CB&Qs stainless cars; a feature that gives these locomotives a noticeable shine and makes the matching Silver Streak Zephyr so elegant.

Please note the loco pilot coupler and mounting bracket are included with the individual E5 locomotive.  The loco pilot coupler and mounting bracket are not incluided in the Silver Streak Sets.
