The U25C diesel-electric locomotive was the initial foray into the 6 axle locomotive arena by General Electric. They were initially introduced in from 1963 to 1965 with a total produced of 113 units. In the 1960s, Rivarossi set the bar high for H0 diesel locomotive models with its release of the U25C. The detail and quality was well ahead of its time. Now after almost 50 years we try to reset that bar by reviving a legend from the past with the all new Rivarossi model of the General Electric U25C. This new model has been licensed by and developed with full co-operation of General Electric. The new release incorporates all new state-of-the art tooling to insure the most accurate model that has been produced.
The new Rivarossi model features a heavy metal die-cast chassis, a 5-pole can motor with flywheels, NMRA RP-25 wheel profile, knuckle couplers (Rivarossi ProtoMate), authentic roadnames, lettering and road numbers. The locomotives come with road specific detailing and lighting configurations and separately applied detail parts such as horns, bell, handrails, grab irons and snowplows (if appropriate). All models either come DC (DCC ready) or as DCC/Sound equipped versions. DCC/Sound equipped versions uses ESU LokSound decoders.
