After WWII, dieselization began in earnest, and EMD's switchers dominated the market.  EMD built 888 of their NW2 model.  Each was equipped with a 1000 hp, V12 567-A engine. Broadway Limited Imports has modeled the NW2 Phase V in a variety of road names that are described below.  These models are accurate HO scale replicas of the real NW2's, and come equipped with our new state-of-the-art sound system - Paragon2. The Paragon2 sound and control system allows you to operate your model in DC or DCC out-of-the-box.  With the Paragon2 sound and control system, the switcher offers authentic NW2 switcher sounds, and provides the operator with excellent slow-speed control unrivaled in the industry today. Along with authentic NW2 sounds, our model also has some fun features like user-controllable crew chatter and yard noise.  Please continue reading below for additional details of the model and of the Paragon2 sound and control system.
