Broadway Limited Imports is excited to release a new modern diesel locomotive model - the GE ES44AC. Between 2002 and 2019, General Electric built over 3,700 of these six-axle, 4400 HP locomotives. Today, they can be found on every Class I railroad in North America.

In 2022, we are offering models of the ES44AC's in several new paint schemes that we have never built before, including the CSX Pride in Service units. We are also offering several of the NS Heritage models for a second time, as well as several fantasy paint schemes, adapting older railroad liveries to the new ES44AC diesel body. Our models will all have our new Paragon4 DC/DCC Sound and Control system, including Rolling Thunder and extra built-in capacity for better electrical pick-up. Our Paragon4 N scale diesel models have five independent light outputs, and the ES44AC models will have the following independently controllable lights in each model:
Headlight
Rear Light
Cab Light
Front Numberboards
Front Ditch Lights
