Item DescriptionThis is Bachmann 65404 HO NS Heritage ES44AC PRR #8102/DCC Sound. GE ES44AC with sound and DCC, Norfolk Southern #8102 (Pennsylvania Heritage scheme, tuscan, gold). In 2002, GE released the first of a new series of locomotives that would replace the popular Dash-9 series. The ES44DC and ES44AC, often called GEVOs for General Electric Evolution series, were designed to meet the stricter diesel locomotive emissions standards imposed by the EPA Tier II regulations. To meet the new standards, GE developed the 12-cylinder GEVO 12 engine. Both the bore and stroke were increased to produce the same 4400 horsepower as the older 7FDL16 16-cylinder engine. The new engine drives an alternator producing AC current that is rectified to DC current. On the ES44DC, this powers the traction motors. On the ES44AC, the DC current is chopped back into AC to power the traction motors. Its key features are: Sound Value SoundTraxx diesel sound package with prototypical prime mover, 3 air horns, and bell all in polyphonic 16-bit sound E-Z Mate Mark II couplers
