CSX Transportation is one of two Class 1 railroads that dominate freight railroading east of the Mississippi (the other being Norfolk Southern). With the bold slogan “How Tomorrow Moves,” CSX trains carry everything from Florida orange juice to new cars to containerized toys and clothing from halfway around the world. Recreate the excitement of modern railroading with this CSX freight set, led by our twin-motored model of General Electric’s Dash 8 diesel, featuring smooth speeds from a crawl to full throttle, remote-controlled couplers, LED headlight and a symphony of locomotive and train sounds.
Capture the high-horsepower drama of modern railroading with this CSX freight set, headed by our twin-motored General Electric Dash 8 diesel. A best-seller for GE from 1987-1994 and still in wide use today, the Dash 8 helped pioneer computer control of locomotive functions, from engine control to troubleshooting to making sure all 12 wheels were gripping the track and not slipping. Our model features an LED headlight to light up the night; Proto-Speed Control for smooth, steady speeds from a crawl to full throttle; traction tires for tremendous pulling power; and a full range of sounds from blaring horn and clanging bell to diesel motor, squealing brakes, freight yard sounds and crew conversations.
