It also features directional headlights (without any of the lightpiping equipment intruding on the interior cab detail), low profile wheels, illuminated numberboards, and Kato magnetic knuckle couplers. This locomotive features: All locomotives will be equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers, Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards, Sophisticated lightpiping keeps the visible cab interior free of lighting equipment, Interior cab can be populated with N scale figures from our N Yard Crew Day/Night set, #24-270, All new motor and mechanism design, and Locomotives are DCC friendly, able to take drop in decoders such as Digitrax DN123K3 or Train Control Systems K3D3.
