The Athearn Genesis-series HO scale Electro-Motive Division GP39-2 features roadname- and era-specific detailing. Our Delaware & Hudson-decorated review sample also came factory-equipped with a SoundTraxx Tsunami Digital Command Control (DCC) sound decoder. Watch the locomotive work for a living as it picks up and sets out model train cars along the Model Railroader staff's HO scale shelf layout.
