Walthers Mainline HO EMD GP9 Phase II with High Hood - Standard DC - Santa Fe #718 (blue, yellow)
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
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
