The Athearn Family

What are you modeling today?


Introduced in 1995, the EMD SD90MAC was intended to become that builder’s most-powerful single-engine diesel locomotive. The Athearn Genesis SD90MAC features all of the cutting-edge detail and operational features that are expected by discerning modelers: Working number boards and ground lights, see-through steps, numerous separately-applied details on the body and underframe, and a heavy die-cast frame for massive pulling power for your model train.
