Prototype Information:

The General Electric P42, or "Genesis" is a modern 4200 horsepower passenger engine used across the US and Canada. Since their introduction, they've had a number of revisions for easier maintenance and parts replacement, including a bolt-on fiberglass nose panel (replacing the original's solid metal) and a new headlight bezel that's 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 ( DC OPERATION ONLY ), 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.
