In addition to Southern Ry., Broadway Limited Imports offers the SD40 lettered for Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe; Chesapeake & Ohio; Canadian National; Canadian Pacific; Conrail; CSX; Pennsylvania RR; Southern Pacific; and Union Pacific. Each paint scheme is offered in two road numbers; and undecorated model with C&O details is also available.

The model, which has a minimum operating radius of 18”, will operate on code 70, 83, and 100 rail.

The SD40, priced at $399.99, has a dual-mode Paragon4 sound decoder featuring Rolling Thunder, back-electromotive-force control, a built-in capacitor pack, individually controllable lights, and all-wheel electrical pickup. Product Review videos showcase the latest new items from manufacturers of products in Z, N, HO, S, O, and large scales.
