Austrains HO Class 442 Freight Rail Blue #44215 DC-Only/Hardwire - 44215

This locomotive requires a DCC decoder to be fitted to the socket for it to work on a DCC controlled layout. It can however still be used on the conventional DC (analogue) layout. 

The 442 class were ordered and operated by the New South Wales Government Railways. They were the second generation of Alco units to be built, and were used on both main freight and passenger service in New South Wales. Since entering private ownership they have operated across Australia. They are identical to the South Australian Railways 700 class. They were nicknamed Jumbos, due to their 1971 delivery coinciding with that of Qantas' first Boeing 747s.
