N-Scale Silver Streak Zephyr

Prototype Information —
The next big thing is here! Wrapped in a specially decorated and printed bookcase style package, the “Silver Streak Zephyr” will be a complete classic named train in a single box, containing both the E5A locomotive “Silver Bullet” (complete with prototypical skirted trucks) and the five-car consist that made up this CB&Q streamlined and corrugated train.
EMD E5A #9909 “Silver Bullet” was built specially for service with the Silver Streak Zephyr and was fitted with Skirts on the trucks and a covered cowl to emphasize the sleek, streamlined look of the locomotive and train
The individual EMD E5A locomotive releases will have different printing patterns on the nose to reflect the “general use” versions of the CB&Q E5A locomotive, as well as have un-skirted trucks that reflect the locomotive’s later appearance when they would have been used to pull trains such as the California Zephyr.
The EMD E5 has a distinctive raised angular radiator grill arrangement on the roof that was specific for that locomotive.
A special feature of the new Kato EMD E5A is that the front coupler cowling can be removed on both the skirted and un-skirted units in order to mount a Kato magnetic knuckle coupler – this allows modelers to double head these locomotives when pulling longer trains such as the California Zephyr! Please note that the optional couplers are only included with the single locomotive releases.
