HO NH EP-5 “Jet” Electric Locomotive

In the early 1960s the units had FRA-mandated nose grabs and walkways applied. At about this time the paint scheme was modified slightly with the nose “NH” being reduced in size and the nose road number increased in size and moved onto the nose from its previous location at the top of the anticlimber. Side skirts around the fuel and water tank were also removed at about this time.

Several EP-5s continued in service after the Penn Central merger in 1969 while others were stored (with the new class designation E40). The PC transferred some units to former PRR territory where they were used in freight service. The last “Jet” was retired in 1977, shortly after the formation of Conrail. All ten units were scrapped.

Developed with help from the New Haven Railroad Technical and Historical Association and noted EP-5 expert, Rick Abramson, Rapido’s HO model features a full range of detail options that will allow accurate depictions of the EP-5 throughout its service life.

Both as-built units with smooth side panels and modified units with the large vent openings will be offered. Double and single pantograph shoes will be available and the later nose grabs and platforms will be provided as a user-installed option where appropriate.

HO Model Features:

•Accurately scaled from prototype blueprints

•Period-correct detail options, including carbody, pantograph and hardware variations

•Accurate paint and lettering

•Directional operating pantographs (sound models only)

•Accurate “Jet” sounds (DC/DCC/Sound version)

•Complete lighting package including headlights, class lights, ground lights and cab interior lighting

•Factory-installed MacDonald-Cartier metal couplers
