ScaleTrainscom N scale GE Dash 9 diesel
Rumbling to life on N scale rails, a General Electric C44-9W joins the Rivet Counter series roster. Like the HO scale version I reviewed in the June 2019 issue, the 1:160 locomotive features prototype-specific details and accurate paint schemes, and is available with a dual-mode ESU LokSound decoder that operates on Digital Command Control (DCC) and direct-current (DC) layouts.

In addition to the Rivet Counter version, the N scale Dash 9 is also available in versions with no sound and fewer factory-applied details as part of the firm’s value-priced Operator Series. At the time of this writing, many of the Dash 9s are sold out at the manufacturer; however, they are still available at hobby shops and other online retailers.
