DEALER EXCLUSIVE KATY CHALLENGER 20-3899-1
In 1943, ALCO built thirty-one 4-6-6-4 Challenger locomotives for Union Pacific However, The U.S. War Production Board diverted six locomotives after completion to the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Locomotives 3900-3905 were later sold to Clinchfield Railroad in 1947 and were renumbered as 670-675 .These six Challengers were eventually retired in 1953.
The Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad(MKT) put in a bid for one of these Challengers to pull
their Texas Special passenger train. The Katy's, as is affectionately known, request was denied.
The streamlined Texas Special cars were bright red with shining corrugated aluminum side panels.
On August 12, 1988 the Union Pacific Corporation, purchased the Katy with approval from the Interstate Commerce Commission. The MKT/Katy Heritage color scheme appears on the UP SD70ace cab 1988.
Silver painted wheels with polished nickel plated rims and drive rods adorn our model.
Silver painted tender truck side frames and trailing trucks complement.
Locomotive and tender are the same red as on the UP Katy Heritage SD70ace.
The maroon tender striping and sand domes carry over.
The smoke deflector is detachable to reveal more piping and builder's plate.
