This is Kato 176-4958 N SD40-2 Mid Production IC #6250. EMD SD40-2 Mid Illinois Central #6250. As a prototype, the SD40-2 was the most popular second-generation diesel with sales of over 3000 in the U.S. and more than 700 in Canada. There were many variations of this popular diesel because of the long production run – “Mid” versions had large anti-climbers (the front porch area of the locomotive) and deck mounted ditch lights necessary for meeting modern FRA standards. Sometimes nicknamed “death stars” because of the resemblance of the circular IC logo to a certain movie installation, the Illinois Central rebuilt a number of former BN SD40-2’s into “dash 3’s”, which while not an official designation identifies these units as upgraded units.
