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

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
Video Rating: 0 / 5

G-scale SD40-2 USA TRAINS test run

Test run of a SD40-2 from USA TRAINS. The engine is drived by a Zimo MX69-V decoder and sounded by a Phoenix big soun P8 board. All the light have been changed and are now high power warm white LED. The decoder is really great and have smooth low speed and great programmable functions. The sound board with a 2.5″ speaker is very powerfull and and have great features like rev up and down diesel to simulate free rolling or grade opperations.
