Santa Fe GP39-2 Phase 2 Locomotive #3669-HO Scale-by Atlas

Santa Fe GP39-2 Phase 2 Locomotive #3669-HO Scale-by Atlas
Click Here for Larger Image
The Santa Fe and Southern Pacific had agreed to merge, and started painting their units into a new merger scheme, before the merger took place. It was to be the SPSF, and each railroad put their letters on their own units, with the idea that when the merger was concluded, it would be easy to paint the other two letters on the locomotives and they would be repainted. The merger never happened, so these units were the only things that resulted.

The GP39-2 was offered by EMD as a fuel-efficient alternative to their very popular GP38-2 model. This efficiency resulted from the use of a turbocharged 12-cylinder 645E3 diesel engine, as opposed to the non-turbocharged 16-cylinder prime mover in the GP38-2. The use of a turbocharger increased the horsepower output from 2,000 to 2,300hp with four fewer cylinders. One other benefit of the turbocharger is improved operation at higher altitudes where thin air causes normally-aspirated diesels to lose power and produce excess smoke. The largest original fleet of GP39-2s was assembled by the Santa Fe who, over the course of seven years, acquired a total of 106 units.

Features:

  • NMRA 8-pin plug for DCC.
  • The same drive as our basic Master Series™, in an affordable locomotive.
  • Five-pole skewed armature motor with dual flywheels.

  • Locating dimples for grab irons.
  • True scale dimensions with accurate details.
  • Realistic die-cast under frames.
  • Equipped with AccuMate® Couplers.
  • As with our Master Series™ GP-38, this model features either a 2,600 or 3,600 gallon fuel tank.
