Kato SD40-2 Diesel Locomotive BNSF Review (HO Gauge) HD (400th Video)

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Here is my 400th video to come to my channel. This is a review of the Kato EMD (Electro Motive Division) SD40-2 BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) Diesel Locomotive in the HO scale which is modelled to the 1:87th gauge. This is my first US Locomotive I own from Kato and it is very nicely detailed and it looks superb when the extra parts are added as well. The model will need horns when I can get hold of some as I didn’t find any inside the packet, but once I find out where I can source Kato spares for these models. I intend to fit the replacement horns to the roof. Overall Rating: 10/10

The SD70MAC (colloquially known as a "Mac" or a "Mac 70") is very similar to the SD70M and SD70I (the SD70I’s WhisperCab feature was a build-to-order option), the main difference being that the SD70MAC uses AC traction motors. AC motors, while more simple and reliable than DC motors, require substantially more expensive inverters to generate a variable-frequency AC signal. The majority of SD70MAC models were produced with 4,000 horsepower (2,980 kW) EMD Model 710 prime movers, while later-production SD70MACs are rated at 4,300 horsepower (3,210 kW) and feature SD45-style flared radiators. They were also offered with a head-end power generation system for passenger trains. (The SD70MAC is no longer produced due to EPA regulations and has been replaced by the SD70ACe.) Over 1,500 examples of this locomotive model were produced. Purchasers include Burlington Northern (now BNSF), Conrail (engines now owned by CSX), CSX, TFM/Kansas City Southern and the Alaska Railroad. (Wikipedia)

The EMD SD70 was a series of diesel-electric locomotives produced by the Electro-Motive Diesel beginning in 1992. Over 4,000 locomotives in this series were produced, mostly of the SD70M and SD70MAC models. All locomotives of this series are hood units with C-C trucks. All SD70 models up to the SD70ACe and SD70M-2 have the HTCR Radial truck, rather than the HT-C truck; the self-steering radial truck was designed to allow the axles to steer in curves, reducing wear on the wheels and railhead. With the introduction of the SD70ACe and SD70M-2, in an effort to reduce cost EMD introduced a new bolsterless non-radial HTSC truck as the standard truck for these models. The radial truck, now the HTCR-4, is still an option. (Wikipedia)
