Description: 176-5401N E5A Chicago Burlington & Quincy #9910A "Silver Speed"The EMD E5 has a distinctive raised angular radiator grill arrangement on the roof that was specific for that locomotive.A special feature of the new Kato EMD E5A is that the front coupler cowling can be removed on both the skirted and un-skirted units in order to mount a Kato magnetic knuckle coupler - this allows modelers to double head these locomotives when pulling longer trains such as the California Zephyr!Another point of interest is that all E5's were custom built with stainless steel corrugated sides so as to match the CB&Q's stainless cars; a feature that gives these locomotives a noticeable shine !
