|#87506 HO EP-5 Loco|
The New Haven EP-5 passenger locomotive. Known by crews as "Jets," these locomotives were built in 1955 for the NH, wore the "McGinnis" paint scheme, and were numbered in the 370 series (Ten were built, 370 thru 379). After the PC merger the eight surviving units were re-classed as E40s, numbered 4970-4977, and were painted PC black. They were originally slated for passenger service, but they proved to be unreliable, so they were put into freight service. Six E40s survived to Conrail, but were retired by the end of 1977.
IHP is marketing this fine model for its producer, New Haven Terminal (Branford Hobbies). Faithfully reproduced in thermal cure plastic (resin) this EP-5 captures all the beauty and details of the original.
