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.
