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.

2011 marks the 40th anniversary of Amtrak – to commemorate this historic birthday, Amtrak has painted a number of its locomotives into a series of anniversary schemes, each taking design cues from a different paint and logo era from the railroad’s history.

P42 locomotive #145 is painted in a phase III heritage scheme, indicative of the paint worn by the railroad in the 80’s and early 90’s, and carries the numbers 1971 and 2011 on its side. These heritage locomotives have been seen in attendance at National Train Day celebrations as well as other train related festivities all across the country, and serve as a reminder of Amtrak’s long history as America’s railroad.

  • 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.
  • A unique "Phase III" homage paint scheme decorates this otherwise modern service locomotive, replicated down to the last detail in HO scale form.
