Kato sd40 ho scale,atlas n gauge model railroad track,n scale kitbashing - Step 3

I have been a fan of Kato for years, and so when they came out with their SD40-2 with ditch lights I was eager to get my hands on one.  Like any Kato, this is a very smooth running locomotive. Though technically a two-decoder install, the DH165K1A and SFX004 work together seamlessly.  There is very little overlap of CVs between the two, so you can program them as a single unit. I like the fact that since this model represents 1990s-era prototype, that Kato went the extra mile and lowered the Santa Fe headlight and left off the marker lamps.
The SoundBug is preloaded with generic diesel sounds (the instructions say it is from a SD38-2). The new BNSF "Swoosh" or "Wedge" paintscheme is remeniscent of the older Heritage schemes, while still having a modern feel with the orange-on-black coloration and stylized new logo.
The Santa Fe (and the later repainted BNSF) SD40-2 Mid Production units had a variety of features to make their use more comfortable for the engineers. Alternating ditch lights aren't for everybody; the HO SD40-2 Mid-Production can also be run with steady ditch lights for trips through less populated areas, or if it suits the rules of your railroad.

Thankfully I haven’t been able to make this locomotive do this, so maybe Digitrax has fixed this issue.
If you’re one of those modelers who wants completely authentic sounds, this might disappoint you, though the decoder can be programmed with new sound sets. BNSF #6742 is a recent repaint, with an ex-santa fe lineage, thus having the "comfort cab" with the roof mounted Air Conditioner, nose headlights, and rear mounted airhorn. Among them were the rear mounted airhorn, nose headlight (for lessened glare), and air conditioning unit installed over the cab.

The factory-installed speaker enclosure in the fuel tank makes it easy to add sound, though at the expense of some weight. The grabs are cast in some kind of plastic and are a little thick to my eye, so I’ll probably eventually replace them with metal ones. I did notice that when the decoder is muted it still makes a bit of static noise, though it’s not really noticeable unless your ear is close to the locomotive.

    Train, which is generally set depends upon the manufacturer, and ranges proving that n-scale.
