2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, and like VIA Kato is doing some special paint versions of the N scale P42 locomotive to celebrate! Kato USA will be producing as part of its Kobo Custom Painted line three separate road number releases of the VIA Rail Canada P42 in “Canada 150” paint schemes!

These engines will be custom painted and detailed with their unique “Canada 150” decorations and will have an added headlight on the nose to match the prototype. As with all Kobo custom engines, these will be custom built in limited quantities, making them a special addition to any modeler’s collection!


  • All locomotives will be equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers
  • Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted number boards
  • Locomotives have a powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels
