Standing for “Branch Line Locomotive” the BL2 was EMD’s first foray into lighter-duty switching power, with production commencing in 1947. Designed for improved visibility for the engineer during operation, the locomotive was one of the earliest diesels to feature a wide cab and a narrow long hood, allowing for a clearer view when operating reverse movements. With styling cues taken from the streamliners of its time, the BL2 has remained popular with railfans throughout the years. Originally utilized for both freight and passenger duties on secondary lines, examples can still be found in service today, handling excursions and short-line freight runs. The Bachmann BL2 arrives with DCC on Board, featuring new and existing tooling, authentic paint schemes, and directional LED headlights.

Features include:

• New and existing tooling

• Highly detailed painted bodies with precision graphics

• Dual-mode NMRA-compliant DCC decoder

• Directional headlights with Rule 17 dimming

• Magnetically operated E-Z Mate Mark II couplers

• Blackened machined metal wheels with RP25 contour
