After the US Army was done using them in the fight to victory in the European Theatre of WWII, many of the sturdy little Whitcomb 65-ton diesel locos came back to America. They were sold off one or two at a time, and went on to serve for decades in branchline and industrial service. The US Army Transportation Corps version accurately models the locos as they served all over Europe during and after WWII, with buffers and European couplers. Buffers can be removed and couplers can be replaced with the snap-in PIKO 56043 knuckle couplers or Kadee #17,#18, or #19(sold separately).

The postwar American version features different tooling to reproduce correct details, like the single high headlight and American end beams with PIKO knuckle couplers. 

All PIKO HO Whitcomb models feature diecast metal bodies for extra weight and traction. DC/Non-Sound versions are ready for easy decoder installation.
