Equipped with LIONEL TrainMaster Command & RailSounds 4.0!

Built in the late 1980's by GE, the DASH 8-40B diesel locomotives were identified by their dynamic brake gear located along the roof line between the cab and engine compartment, with engine ventilation provided by large roof-top grilles. These four-axle, high horsepower engines are still in service today in North America.

Skillfully painted and crafted with precision and detail, Atlas O's true 1/4" scale models capture a bonanza of the DASH 8-40B locomotives' features.
