These custom runs of E9 locomotives will be repainted and re-detailed from existing UP units. They have been additionally modified to accurately represent the UP’s current E9’s that it uses with excursion trains. They feature enhancements such as modified roof details, ditch lights and roof beacon (non functioning), modified front headlight bezel, and updated printing!
These locomotives will be offered as part of the Kato USA Kobo Custom Paint line, hand-painted and decorated by a master modeler in Japan. While they will not be a “limited” run, all orders will be processed in a made-to-order fashion and will available on a first come, first served basis until the base models run out. Due to the hand-made nature of this item, some minor blemishes and differences may be present from model to model – Kato USA cannot take returns on items unless they possess major paint or mechanical issues.
