Atlas HO SD-24 & 26 Locomotive

With over 220 units produced by EMD between July 1958 and March 1963, the SD-24 locomotive generated a total of 2,400 hp with its turbocharged 567D-3 prime mover and C-C wheel arrangement.

The majority of SD-24s produced were purchased by four roads: Chicago Burlington & Quincy, Santa Fe, Southern, and Union Pacific. Atlas’ HO scale model features details unique to each road name:

Burlington (CB&Q): High nose, single-chime air horn on short hood, Gyra-light on short hood (non-operating), winterization hatch

Santa Fe: Low nose, 3-chime horn mounted on left side of hood behind cab

Southern: High nose, 5-chime horn mounted on cab, bell detail on short hood

Union Pacific: Low nose, 3-chime horn mounted between 2nd and 3rd radiator fans, winterization hatch
