  • Description
  • Walthers Mainline Phase II High-Hood GP9 is a must-have model for your first-generation diesel roster! Outwardly similar to the earlier GP7, and sharing the same boxy, no frills body with its high, short hood, minor production changes in the number and placement of louvers on locomotives built from 1955 to 1957 resulted in what modelers and railfans refer to as "phase two" GP9s. Like it's prototypes, many still going strong today, the WalthersMainline Phase II High Hood GP9 is the perfect power for any assignment and features:

    All-new body style with standard high hood!
    Based on as-built units produced from 1955 to 1957 (Phase II)
    Limited edition - one time run of these roadnumbers!
    Scale width hood with correct contours
    With or without dynamic brakes as appropriate
    Front and rear footboards
    See-through steps
    Same powerful drive as WalthersProto(R) locos featuring:
    Five-pole skew-wound motor
    14 to 1 gear ratio
    Helical-cut gears for quiet operation and easy multiple unit operation
    All-wheel drive and electrical pickup
    Machined brass flywheel
    Heavy die-cast metal chassis
    Constant and directional LED headlights
    21-pin DCC plug
