Operator HO Scale EMD SD45 Detail Kit

Entering production in 1966, the SD45 was the “Big Block Chevy” of EMD’s “1966 Line” of locomotives.  During the early 1960s, railroads were demanding more and more horsepower from locomotives to meet the demanding schedules of growing high-priority and intermodal (TOFC) traffic.  Higher horsepower equates to faster acceleration and the ability to maintain faster speeds.  American railroads wanted as much of both as they could get.

Union Pacific (UP), in particular, prodded builders to up the horsepower ante which resulted in several exotic locomotives in the 1950s and 1960s.  This included the GE/Alco Gas Turbine designs and various double-diesel designs such as the Alco C855, GE U50 and U50C, and EMD DD35 and DDA35.

While these UP locomotives delivered plenty of raw horsepower, they were big, unwieldy machines, which limited their operational territory.  This also made them unattractive to interchange partner railroads as run-through or pool power.  In addition, a failure of one prime mover or other critical system of a double-diesel would sideline the entire locomotive, effectively resulting in two locomotives out of service.

Western giant Southern Pacific (SP) would also dabble with double-diesels by acquiring a handful of GE U50s and EMD DD35s.  While these various locomotives delivered impressive performance, the size of the double diesels were still a liability plus reliability was questionable.

SP would even go as far as across the Atlantic Ocean to satisfy their appetite for more horsepower, acquiring diesel-hydraulic drive locomotives from Bavarian manufacturer Krauss-Maffei.  The precision-tuned Krauss-Maffei’s were not up to the rigors and deferred maintenance of American railroading so they had relatively brief careers.

To meet the demand of greater horsepower from a more standardized package, EMD would go back to the drawing board in 1965 to develop a new prime mover.  The previous prime mover series, the 567, used in models from F and E-units, to GP7s and GP35s, and everything in between had reached its developmental limits.  EMD would increase the cylinder bore of the new prime mover, resulting in 645 cubic inches of displacement per cylinder … thus, the 645 was born.

As with the 567-series of prime movers, the 645 was built in several variations for different applications.  8 and 12-cylinder versions would power switchers and medium horsepower units, while a 16-cylinder, 3,000hp turbocharged version would power one of the flagships of the line, the SD40.  To answer the call for even more horsepower, a 20-cylinder, 3,600hp turbocharged variant was developed.  This variant, designated the 20-645E3, would be installed in a set of SD45 demonstrator units in late 1965.  The SD45 would define the 1960s horsepower race.

Dressed in EMD white and metallic blue, the SD45 demonstrators made a striking appearance.  Part of the new lineup of locomotives introduced in EMD’s 1966 catalog, the SD45 was the brute of the bunch.  While keeping the basic family appearance of its stablemates, the SD45s featured distinctive outward-canted, or “flared” radiator intakes at the rear of the carbody that smoothly blending into the contour of the dynamic brake hatch.

While the “SD40X” 645 prime mover testbeds of 1964 featured flared radiators as well, the SD45 was the first EMD to go into production with this feature.  While it added to the brutish, broad-shouldered look of the SD45, this feature was a practical one.  It allowed for deeper radiator cores to help cool the massive 20-cylinder prime mover.  The demonstrator units would barnstorm across the country to help promote the new technology.

From the beginning, the SD45 was a hit.  When production commenced in 1966, nearly all major railroads of the era would purchase SD45s.

Western carriers Southern Pacific, Santa Fe, and Union Pacific would acquire fleets of SD45s.  They handled priority TOFC trains, coal drags, and everything in between.

The Hill Railroads of the Pacific Northwest also bought SD45 including Great Northern (GN), Northern Pacific, and Frisco.  In fact, GN’s first SD45, GN #400, would hold the distinction of being the very first production SD45 built.  To celebrate the power and versatility of the latest EMD locomotive, GN #400 received the nickname “HUSTLE MUSCLE” on its long hood.

Eastern carriers purchased the SD45 as well.  Pennsylvania Railroad acquired a sizable fleet, which lasted only a few years before being folded into Penn Central.  Erie-Lackawanna was another notable customer because their SD45s were equipped with low-profile radiator and dynamic brake fans, exhausts, and horns to meet lowere overhead clearances on one of their routes.

SD45s were prevalent in the Southeast as well.  Seaboard Coast Line units lasted all the way through mergers into CSX.  Norfolk Southern and Southern operated their SD45s long hood forward.

Despite their initial success, the SD45 had teething troubles.  The massive 20-645 prime mover had a tendency to break crankshafts early on.  EMD quickly re-engineered and implemented a running change.  Leakage from the extra-deep radiator cores that gave the SD45 its distinctive appearance was an issue some railroads faced early on.  Once again, EMD would quickly diagnose and correct the problem.

Throughout the 1960s until production ended in 1971 with the introduction of the Dash-2 line and its successor, the SD45-2, the SD45 sold well.  Burlington Northern (BN) 6567 holds the distinction of being the last SD45 ever built.

As the nation entered the 1970s, there was a driving force that was to sour railroads on the SD45: fuel costs.  Its high horsepower rating came at a price, with its 20-cylinder prime mover gulping fuel at a higher rate in comparison to other models like the SD40 and SD40-2.  Several railroads felt the extra 600hp over models like the SD40 and SD40-2 did not justify the increased fuel costs.  The OPEC oil embargo of 1973-74 didn’t help matters.  Skyrocketing fuel costs made every drop of fuel precious so conservation and efficiency becoming paramount.  Models like the SD40-2 were to shine, while on most roads, the SD45 came under greater scrutiny.

As the 1970s wore into the 1980s, SD45s quickly started to fall out of favor.  With fuel efficiency and reliability the watchwords of the day and newer models from EMD and GE being introduced, tired SD45s quickly filled dead lines across the country.  Some were retired relatively young.  For example, BN 6567, built in 1971, was retired in 1986, which is a relatively brief career for a locomotive.  While some became trade-in fodder, others met their end at end of a cutting torch.

Secondhand sales gave a new lease on life to many SD45s.  They found work on shortline and regional railroads like Susquehanna and Wisconsin Central where they became the backbones of their fleet.

Some original owners weren’t ready to give up on the SD45.  Southern Pacific, for example, embarked on a capital rebuilding program in the early 1980s.  Electrical cabinets were rebuilt and rewired to Dash-2 standards.  New engine governors dropped the horsepower slightly to 3,200hp to help save fuel.  Santa Fe also upgraded many members of their fleet as well, extending their useful service lives.

The secondhand locomotive market was extended the life of several SD45s as well.  In the early 90s, SD45s were to find newfound popularity as “cores” for rebuilding projects.  Tired, rusty hulks that had been sitting dead in dealer backshops were suddenly in demand, with leasing companies, and railroads like Southern Pacific, seeing value in SD45s rebuilt to the latest specifications.

Most dramatically, these rebuilds would see the original 20-645s removed, and replaced with 16-cylinder versions in their place, to help make them more fuel-efficient.  Locomotive leaser and rebuilder Morrison-Knudsen, who undertook the program to rebuild secondhand SD45s for SP, became so adept at the process, they even developed a technique to cut-down the original 20-645 engine blocks into 16-645s, fabricating new crankshafts and other parts as well.  While they may be the mechanical equivalent of an SD40-2 on the inside, externally they still looked like SD45s.

As the 90s drew to a close, the sun began to set on the SD45 and rebuilt lookalikes.  Mergers and fleet consolidations saw many rebuilt SD45s retired in favor of newer power.  In the 2000s, stricter emissions standards took effect, and newer, more fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly locomotives were being produced en masse.  The few remaining SD45s, rebuilt or otherwise, were suddenly out of work.  As of this writing, there are precious few remaining, mostly on shortlines.

Thankfully, there are several preserved SD45s.  GN 400, aka Hustle Muscle, has been restored and is enjoying retirement at the Minnesota Railroad Museum.  SP’s first SD45, SP 8800 was rebuilt as part of their in-house SD45 rebuild program and becoming became SD45R 7457 in the process.  After a long career with SP, and a stint under merger partner UP, it was donated to the Utah State Railroad Museum in Ogden, Utah where it currently resides.  Thankfully, it’s undergoing restoration back to its classic SP appearance.  These are a few examples of SD45s that still exist for future generations to see and admire.

HO or H0 is a rail transport modelling scale using a 1:87 scale (3.5 mm to 1 foot). It is the most popular scale of model railway in the world.[1][2] The rails are spaced 16.5 mm (0.650 in) apart for modelling 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in) standard gauge tracks and trains in HO.[3]

The name HO comes from 1:87 scale being half that of O scale, which was previously the smallest of the series of older and larger 0, 1, 2 and 3 gauges introduced by Märklin around 1900. In most English-speaking markets it is pronounced and written with the letters HO today, but in other markets remains written with the letter H and number 0 (zero), so in German it is pronounced as [ha: 'nʊl].

History[edit]

After the First World War there were several attempts to introduce a model railway about half the size of 0 scale that would be more suitable for smaller home layouts and cheaper to manufacture. H0 was created to meet these aims. For this new scale, a track width of 16.5 mm was designed to represent prototypical standard gauge track, and a model scale of 1:87 was chosen. By as early as 1922 the firm Bing in Nuremberg, Germany, had been marketing a "tabletop railway" for several years. This came on a raised, quasi-ballasted track with a gauge of 16.5 mm, which was described at that time either as 00 or H0. The trains initially had a clockwork drive, but from 1924 were driven electrically. Accessory manufacturers, such as Kibri, marketed buildings in the corresponding scale.

At the 1935 Leipzig Spring Fair, an electric tabletop railway, Trix Express, was displayed to a gauge described as "half nought gauge", which was then abbreviated as gauge 00 ("nought-nought"). Märklin, another German firm, followed suit with its 00 gauge railway for the 1935 Leipzig Autumn Fair. The Märklin 00 gauge track that appeared more than ten years after Bing's tabletop railway had a very similar appearance to the previous Bing track. On the Märklin version, however, the rails were fixed to the tin 'ballast' as in the prototype, whilst the Bing tracks were simply stamped into the ballast, so that track and ballast were made of a single sheet of metal.

HO scale trains elsewhere were developed in response to the economic pressures of the Great Depression.[2] The trains first appeared in the United Kingdom, originally as an alternative to 00 gauge, but could not make commercial headway against the established 00 gauge. However, it became very popular in the United States, where it took off in the late 1950s after interest in model railroads as toys began to decline and more emphasis began to be placed on realism in response to hobbyist demand.[2] While HO scale is by nature more delicate than 0 scale, its smaller size allows modelers to fit more details and more scale track distance into a comparable area.

In the 1950s HO began to challenge the market dominance of 0 gauge and, in the 1960s, as it began to overtake 0 scale in popularity, even the stalwarts of other sizes, including Marx and Lionel Corporation began manufacturing HO trains.

Today, HO locomotives, rolling stock (cars or carriages), buildings, and scenery are available from a large number of manufacturers in a variety of price brackets.[4]

Standards[edit]

Scale[edit]

HO is the most popular model railroad scale in both continental Europe and North America, whereas OO scale (4 mm:foot or 1:76.2 with 16.5 mm track) is still dominant in the United Kingdom. There are some modellers in the United Kingdom who model in HO scale and the British 1:87 Scale Society was formed in 1994.

In Europe, HO scale is defined in the Normen Europäischer Modellbahnen (NEM) standard "NEM 010" published by MOROP as exactly 1:87.[5] In North America, the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) standard "S-1.2 General Standard Scales" defines HO scale as 3.5 mm (0.1378 in) representing 1 real foot (304.8 mm) – a ratio of 1:87.0857142, usually rounded to 1:87.1.[6] The precise definition of HO scale varies slightly by country and manufacturer.

In other hobbies, the term HO is often used more loosely than in railroad modeling. In slot car racing, HO does not denote a precise scale of car, but a general size of track on which the cars can range from 1:87 to approximately 1:64 scale. Small plastic model soldiers are often popularly referred to as HO size if they are close to one inch (25 mm) high, though the actual scale is usually 1:76 or 1:72.

Even in model railroading, the term HO can be stretched. Some British producers have marketed railway accessories such as detail items and figures, as "HO/OO" in an attempt to make them attractive to modelers in both scales. Sometimes the actual scale is OO, and sometimes the difference is split (about 1:82). These items may be marketed as HO, especially in the US. In addition, some manufacturers or importers tend to label any small-scale model, regardless of exact scale, as HO scale in order to increase sales to railroad modelers. The sizes of "HO" automobiles, for example, from different manufacturers, can vary greatly.

Power and control[edit]

Model locomotives are fitted with small motors that are wired to pick up power from the rails. As with other scales, HO trains can be controlled in either analog or digital fashions. With analog control, two-rail track is powered by direct current (varying the voltage applied to the rails to control speed, and polarity to control direction). With digital control, such as Digital Command Control (DCC) or proprietary systems such as the one developed by Märklin, digital commands are encoded at the controller and received by any decoders receiving power from the track. Digital control allows independent control of each locomotive's speed and direction as well as functions not easily achieved with analog control such as reactive sound and lighting effects, integration of auxiliary decoders and automation.

The basic power and control system consists of a power pack of a transformer and rectifier (DC), a rheostat. On large model layouts, the power system may consist of several signal boosters, control interfaces, switch panels and more. Trackage may be divided into electrically isolated sections called blocks and toggle or rotary switches (sometimes relays) are used to select which tracks are energized. Blocking trackage also allows the detection of locomotives within the block through the measurement of current draw.

Track[edit]

The "gauge" of a rail system is the distance between the inside edges of the railheads. It is distinct from the concept of "scale", though the terms are often used interchangeably in rail modelling. "Scale" describes the size of a modeled object relative to its prototype. Prototype rail systems use a variety of track gauges, so several different gauges can be modeled at the same scale.

The gauges used in HO scale are a selection of standard and narrow gauges. The standards for these gauges are defined by the NMRA (in North America) and the NEM (in Continental Europe). While the standards are in practice interchangeable, there are minor differences.

Construction[edit]

A simple HO scale model railroad, consisting of three interconnected modules, each 70 x 100 cm in size

The earliest "pre-gauged" track available in the 1940s had steel rails clipped to a fiber tie base. This was called flexible track as it could be "flexed" around any curve in a continuous fashion. The sections were sold in lengths of 3 feet (91 cm), and the rail ends were connected with a sheet metal track connector that was soldered to the base of the rail.

As brass became more readily available, the steel rail was phased out, along with its corrosion problems. Brass flex-track continued to be available long after sectional track was introduced, as the three-foot lengths of rail reduced the number of joints. The biggest disadvantage of flex-track was that it had to be fastened to a roadbed.

In the late 1940s, Tru-Scale made milled wood roadbed sections, simulating ballast, tie plates and milled ties with a gauged, grooved slot with simulated tie plates. Bulk HO code 100 rail was spiked in place with HO spikes. This was available in straight lengths and curves, from 18-to-36-inch (460 to 910 mm) radius. It was up to the user to stain the wood for the tie colors prior to laying the brass track, and then adding scale ballast between the ties.

Tru-Scale made preformed wood roadbed sections, simulating ballast, that the flextrack would be fastened with tiny steel spikes. These spikes were shaped much like real railroad spikes, and were fitted through holes pre-drilled in the fiber flextrack ties base. An improvement was made when "sectional track" became available in a variety of standardized lengths, such as the ubiquitous 9-inch (230 mm) straight and curved tracks of 15-inch (380 mm), 18-inch (460 mm), and 22-inch (560 mm) radii. These are representative of curves as tight as 108 feet (33 m), which in the real world would only be found on some industrial spurs and light rail systems.

Sectional track was an improvement in setting up track on a living room floor because the rail was attached to a rigid plastic tie base, and could withstand rough handling from children and pets without suffering much damage. With flex track, which can be bent to any desired shape (within reason), it became possible to create railroads with broader curves, and with them more accurate models. Individual rails are available for those that wish to spike their own rails to ties. Individual ties can be glued to a sound base, or pre-formed tie and ballast sections milled from wood can be used for a more durable, if somewhat artificially uniform, look is preferred.

There are a variety of preassembled track sections made by Märklin using their three-rail system (where the third rail are actually studs protruding from the center of the rail tie). This trackwork is a little bulkier looking than true to scale, but it is considered quite trouble-free, and is preferred by many that are interested in reducing much of the operational problems that come with HO scale railroading. As with other preformed track, it is also available in several radius configurations. Generally speaking, very-sharp-radius curves are only suitable for single-unit operation, such as trolley cars, or for short-coupled cars and locos such as found around industrial works. Longer wheelbase trucks (bogies) and longer car and loco overhangs require the use of broader radius curves. Today many six-axle diesels and full-length passenger cars will not run on curves less than 24 inches (610 mm) in radius.

HO scale track was originally manufactured with steel rails on fiber ties, then brass rail on fiber ties, then brass rail on plastic tie. Over time, track made of nickel silver (an alloy of nickel and brass) became more common due to its superior resistance to corrosion. Today, almost all HO scale track is of nickel silver, although Bachmann, Life-Like and Model Power continue to manufacture steel track.

In America, Atlas gained an early lead in track manufacturing, and their sectional, flex, and turnout track dominates the US market. In the UK, Peco's line of flex track and "Electrofrog" (powered frog) and "Insulfrog" (insulated frog) turnouts are more common. Atlas, Bachmann, and Life-Like all manufacture inexpensive, snap-together track with integral roadbed. Kato also manufactures a full line of "HO Unitrack"; however, it has not yet caught on as their N scale Unitrack has.

Rail height is measured in thousandths of an inch; "code 83" track has a rail which is 0.083 inches (2.1 mm) high. As HO's commonly available rail sizes, especially the popular "code 100", are somewhat large (representative of extremely heavily trafficked lines), many modelers opt for hand-laid finescale track with individually laid wooden sleepers and crossties and rails secured by very small railroad spikes.

In Australia, many club-owned layouts employ code 100 track so that club members can also run OO-scale models and older rolling stock with coarse (deep) wheel flanges.

Couplers[edit]

A hook and loop coupler originally developed by Märklin has become an NEM standard and is still widely used. More recently, manufacturers, including Fleischmann and Märklin, have developed close couplers that on straight track have the buffers almost touching, more like the prototype. On curves a sliding mechanism allows the couplers to move away from the buffer frame providing the additional clearance necessary.

Most couplers provide pre-uncoupling, whereby a train may reverse over a raised uncoupler and some time later change direction leaving the train (or selected cars) behind.

Another NEM standard is the coupler pocket, into which the individual coupler slots. The majority of models provide this pocket, meaning that it is very simple to exchange one coupler type for another, or to replace damaged couplers.

In America, all train sets/kits used to come with the "X2F" or "Horn Hook" coupler until Kadee came out with the #5 coupler. After Kadee's patent ran out, other manufacturers made duplicates of the KD#5 until KD brought out the scale accurate #58 coupler and everyone else followed suit.

Models[edit]

Because of the scale's popularity, a huge array of models, kits and supplies are manufactured. The annual HO scale catalog by Wm. K. Walthers, North America's largest model railroad supplier, lists more than 1,000 pages of products in that scale alone. Models are generally available in three varieties:

  • Ready-to-run models are fully ready for use right out of the box. Generally, this means couplers, trucks (bogies), and other integral parts are installed at the factory, although some super detailing parts may still need to be attached.
  • Shake-the-box kits are simple, easy-to-assemble kits; a freight car might include a one-piece body, a chassis, trucks, couplers, and a weight, while a structure kit might include walls, windows, doors, and glazing. The name derives from the joke that no skill was required – shake the box, and the kit falls together. A common synonym is screwdriver kit as many can be assembled with a screwdriver and tweezers.
  • Craftsman kits require a much higher level of skill to assemble and can include several hundred parts.

In addition to these kits, numerous manufacturers sell individual supplies for super detailing, scratch building, and kitbashing.

Quality varies extremely. Toylike, ready-to-run trains using plastic molds which are well over 50 years old are still sold; at the other are highly detailed limited-edition locomotive models made of brass by companies based in Japan and South Korea. A popular locomotive such as the F7/F9 may be available in thirty different versions with prices ranging from twenty to several thousand dollars or euros.

Comparison to other scales[edit]

HO scale's popularity lies somewhat in its middle-of-the-road status. It is large enough to accommodate a great deal of detail in finer models, more so than the smaller N and Z scales, and can also be easily handled by children. Models are usually less expensive than the smaller scales because of more exacting manufacturing process in N and Z, and also less expensive than S, O and G scales because of the smaller amount of material; the larger audience and the resultant economy of scale also drives HO prices down. The size lends itself to elaborate track plans in a reasonable amount of room space, not as much as N but considerably more than S or 0. In short, HO scale provides the balance between the detail of larger scales and the lower space requirements of smaller scales.

Operator HO Scale Gunderson Multi-Max Autorack Detail Kit

Since the development of the automobile, railroads and automakers have worked together to develop better and more efficient methods for transporting new vehicles to market.  Shipping via rail offers automakers a fast, cost-effective method of moving new autos from manufacturing centers to distribution centers, or in the early days, to dealers themselves.

Double-door boxcars were amongst the first designs to haul automobiles.  The larger opening of the double-doors allowed cars to be driven aboard.  As time passed, flatcars equipped with multi-level open-air racks were developed.  Since automobiles are relatively light, long flats of up to 89’ in length were adapted to use two (bi-level) or three (tri-level) deck racks.  Simply known as “autoracks”, these unique cars can carry a dozen or more vehicles.

By the late 1960s, new vehicles shipped via racks would prove too tempting for vandals who used the windows on new vehicles for target practice.  Thieves would also take a toll by breaking into new automobiles to steal high-value components like stereos and hubcaps.  Even train-hopping transients would prove to be a problem since riding in a new automobile was much more comfortable than a dirty boxcar or gondola.

To shield new vehicles from wayward projectiles, railroads and car builders added metal screens or fiberglass panels to the sides of the autoracks.  While the side screens or panels worked to protect window glass, the ends of the autoracks remained open which allowed easy access for thieves or transients to climb aboard and damage new vehicles.

The 1970s would see the development of fully-enclosed autoracks to protect the valuable cargo inside.  The sides were completely protected with perforated galvanized-steel panels.  The top of the car was enclosed with a galvanized steel roof which protected cars on the top level.  Finally, the ends were equipped with a large pair of sliding or folding doors to keep unwanted passengers out.

With many racks built in the 60s and 70s nearing the end of their operational lives, Greenbrier/Gunderson introduced a new design in 2013 to provide the ultimate in protection for vehicles as well as operational flexibility.  The new design, dubbed “Multi-Max”, introduced design elements to help meet the challenges faced by railroads and shippers in the 21st century.

While the basic enclosed autorack protected new autos from projectiles, a new form of vandalism became prevalent in the late 1990s, graffiti.  Paint spray would pass through the perforations in the side panels and onto the new automobiles ruining their finish.  The perforations are a necessity because hey allow enough light for workers to see while loading or unloading the cars as well as to allow ventilation of automobile exhaust.  Multi-Max features smaller, fewer, and more widely spaced perforations in its side panels, reducing the chance of paint spray passing through.

In another novel design feature, the cars feature the ability to adjust the number of decks.  “Bi-level” autoracks are intended to carry taller vehicles, such as SUVs or vans, while “tri-level” autoracks, having an additional deck, handle shorter-in-height standard or compact autos in the same given space.  Traditionally, railroads would order bi- and/or tri-level racks based upon anticipated traffic from manufacturing plants.  If a plant decided to shift production from one vehicle type to another, such as from automobiles, to SUVs, it could result in a surplus of a car type unsuitable for the new traffic.  Multi-Max features the ability for railroad car shops to change the car configuration from bi-level to tri-level, or vice-versa, as traffic patterns dictate.

With several thousand auto carriers built for nearly all North American Class One railroads, the Gunderson Multi-Max has proven to be an extremely popular design.  In a welcome departure from recent practice, many of these cars wear colorful schemes featuring large logos which helps them stand out in a train alongside older autorack designs.  With the numbers built to date and its popularity with shippers, the Greenbrier/Gunderson Multi-Max is poised to become the premier autorack design of the 2000s.
