Product Review ScaleTrains HO C44-9W UP – Union Pacific Dash 9!
Another Dash 9 review? Heck yes!
This week Dan reviews an HO scale GE C44-9W locomotive from ScaleTrains. The Dash 9s that Union Pacific ordered new from General Electric were built in 1994. GE delivered 40 units, numbered 9700-9739.
Union Pacific later acquired additional C44-9W locomotives through mergers with Chicago & Northwestern and Southern Pacific.
Part of the ScaleTrains Rivet Counter line, this model train is loaded with detail, and comes with an ESU LokSound DCC and sound decoder pre-installed. The engine is painted in UP’s 90’s-era yellow and gray with a red sill stripe.
Dan evaluates the model’s packaging, prototype accuracy, paint & detail, and how well it operates and conforms to applicable standards. This product review and unboxing also includes a RIP Track segment, where Dan does a little work on the engine.
If you’re a fan of Union Pacific or modern era HO scale motive power be sure to check this one out!
