The EMD E5 was built as a 2000 horsepower (despite the “E” in the name of the locomotive series originally referring to an “Eighteen hundred” horsepower engine specification) locomotive for passenger service specifically for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. The major difference between the E5 and its other early E-unit brothers was its stainless steel finish and distinctive fluting, specifically chosen to match the CB&Q’s corrugated passenger trains such as the California Zephyr, Nebraska Zephyr, and Silver Streak Zephyr. 

A special feature of the new Kato EMD E5A is that the front coupler cowling can be removed on both the skirted and un-skirted units in order to mount a Kato magnetic knuckle coupler – this allows modelers to double head these locomotives when pulling longer trains such as the California Zephyr! Please note that the optional couplers are only included with the single locomotive releases.

Model Features:

  • Equipped with a mix of body and truck mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers
  • Directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards
  • Powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels
  • DCC fitted
