Also produced as Lionel 6-47946 (#9358, in 2016; see Photo #2). It has been reported that this engine will run on a DCC-powered layout without modification and tested on multiple DCC platforms. You do not need a Lionel Legacy system. The scale wheels pass the NASG S-4 wheel standards. Using the NASG gauge, back-to-back is spot-on and flange depth is also spot-on. Wheel width was measured at 0.126". Overall length, and cab width and height, are spot-on or very, very close to prototype measurements. Kadee 802 couplers can be easily installed, with perhaps a 0.010" styrene pad needed. The Micro-Mark Digital Pull Meter showed pulling power at 0.185kg (6.5oz). The unit has a fan-driven smoke unit.
