P42 Genesis


The P42 Genesis diesel locomotive was designed for passenger service duty for Amtrak, NJ Transit Metro North and VIA rail. The Genesis diesel wears a unibody car body called monocoque, making it lighter and more fuel efficient than its contemporary locomotives. An interesting note is that the P42 Genesis is the only locomotive to be low enough to traverse all of its Amtrak routes. The Kato HO Scale P42 Genesis diesel will look great on any contemporary model train layout and for any Amtrak railroad enthusiast a collection centerpiece. The locomotive is the first in a new design providing superior pulling power through duel powered trucks. The new design uses coreless motors and allows for added frame weight.
