Product Details

Overview

Conrail was well known for their iconic blue locomotives, “can opener” logo and hot intermodal services. But perhaps the most elusive and best-dressed operation they ran was their Office Car Specials, complete with a trio of Pullman green E-units. Numbered 4020 through 4022, these were the backbone of many OCS trips, right on up till the final day in 1999. The 4020 and 4021 were equipped with HEP, while the 4022 retained its steam boiler. Other spotting features included: porthole removal, lack of skirting, mini anticlimbers, dynamic brakes (sans the 4022) and cab mounted Leslie RS3L air horn. Despite lacking a HEP generator, the 4022 did carry HEP pass-through receptacles, making it capable of trailing or leading.

The Conrail OCS E-unit Features:

  • HEP muffler for 4020-4021
  • Steam generator details for 4022
  • Dynamic brake options where appropriate
  • Sealed, twin-beam headlight configuration
  • Modified pilots
  • Correct side grills
  • Rebuilt blanked sides (portholes removed) in two variations
  • Non-skirted fuel tanks
  • Three chime RS3L and Hancock air whistle air horns included
  • Hyatt roller bearing journal covers
  • Numerous road-specific detail parts in both plastic and etched metal.
  • Heavy die-cast chassis
  • Smooth running drive system with all wheels powered
  • Accurate E8 sounds provided by ESU LokSound
  • Complete lighting effects – headlights, class lights, backup lights, ground lights, cab lights, Stratolite or beacons and more. *Not all lighting features work in DC mode.
