The Athearn Genesis HO scale GP50 locomotives feature prototype-specific detail. We ran a Chicago North Western Phase I version and an Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Phase II version. Each model includes a SoundTraxx Tsunami Digital Command Control (DCC) sound decoder. Watch them in action hauling freight trains on the Model Railroader staff's club layout, the Milwaukee, Racine & Troy.
