This is a brand new Bachmann HO scale SC-44 Charger painted operated by WSDOT painted in Amtrak's "Cascades" latest livery. Even though these are relatively new locomotives and have only been in service for several years, they can get dirty (especially in the winter months) during frequent use daily commuter service. The sound on these is incredible and it includes a full set of features such as alternating ditch lights and working marker lights. Performance is very smooth from the factory. I am an authorized dealer Bachmann dealer so this comes with all factory warranties and coverages.
Weathering features include the following:
Painted wheels with accurate metal disc break sections exposed.
Minimal dust coating across the entire locomotive with accumulation on the intake grills on each side.
Accurate light dust and soot accumulations across the roof.
Polyurethane matte finish which allows for handling without worrying about fingerprints or damaging the weathering.
Multi step weather process which builds paint details up in layers to more accurately represent the prototype's dust accumulation.
I'm happy to answer any questions and welcome combined shipping. Please pay within 48hrs or let me know if you need further time to complete the purchase.
