Dear HO Scale Customers;

GE P42 Genesis Diesel Locomotives Media Page

2021 Marked the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Amtrak, and they celebrated with the production of a number of special anniversary paint schemes that celebrated both Amtrak’s past and its future. Now, in 2022, Kato USA has produced HO scale models of all five of Amtrak’s P42 special paint engines: The modern “Phase V”, sleek “Midnight Blue”, retro styled Phase I and “Dash-8 Phase III”, and the brand new “Phase VI”, a new paint scheme that will adorn Amtrak’s newest engines!

Rounding out the production of anniversary units will be Operation Lifesaver unit #203, coming later this year along with standard Phase V paint P42 releases!

Utilizing a unique truck-motor design, the HO GE P42 from Kato USA is able to pull an enormous number of cars, such as the recently released Viewliner II Baggage, smoothly and gracefully thanks to its heavy weighted body!

Prototype Information:

The General Electic P42 locomotive is also known as the "Genesis" locomotive. The P42 is a modern 4200 horsepower passenger locomotive used across the United States and Canada. Amtrak's P42 has replaced the EMD F40PH in revenue service and today they are used throughout the United States. Since their introduction, they have had a number of physical revisions to improve the ease of maintenance and parts replacements, including a bolt-on fiberglass nose panel (replacing the original's solid metal which was difficult to repair or replace) and a new headlight bezel that is more rounded than the previous square versions.

Model Features:

  • Perfectly suited to pull Kato's new production of Phase IVb Superliners.
  • Directional headlights and tail lights on both the front and rear of the locomotive, allowing it to operate as both a standard pulling locomotive with double heading capability or a push-pull engine, whether oriented facing forward or back.
  • Illuminated pre-printed numberboards
  • Capable of navigating minimum 370mm (14 3/5") radius curves (R1 radius in Europe), allowing the P42 to go where previous Kato locomotives have never been able to go before - dining room tables, coffee tables, spaces previously reserved exclusively for N scale!
  • Brand new coreless truck-motor drive paired with a super-heavy solid metal body mechanism; doubling the number of motors while increasing the traction potential and weight for new standard of running smoothness and pulling power.
  • Available from your local dealer or Kato-Direct with either Soundtraxx or ESU Loksound DCC and Sound pre-installed!
  • (PDF) Downloadable quick-start guide for ESU Loksound equipped P42's
