Built on the same frame as the SD40, SD38 and several other EMD staples, EMD produced 1,260 SD45s between Decembers 1965 and 1971.  These freight haulers sported EMD's 645E3 20-cylinder engine which had 3,600HP output.  EMD's SD45s served on the Burlington Northern, Southern Pacific, Santa Fe, Pennsylvania, Great Northern, UP, NP and many other railroads.  Today, locomotives are currently preserved at the GN Railway Historical Society, the St Louis Museum of Transportation, the Virginia Museum of Transportation, the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Illinois Railway Museum and the Lake Superior Railroad Museum. 

These are No-Sound / DCC-Ready models that operate on DC out of the box, or a modeler can easily install their DCC decoder of choice.  Out of the box, Front and rear lights are directional, and other lights are always ON with track power.  Additionally some lighting functions may be missing depending on selected aftermarket decoder the modeler installs.  All of our models have road-specific details and lighting.
