The railroad herald, and lettering is done in WHITE by a heat-stamp. There is an ornamental horn and bell on top of the body.
This diesel has a Type IID motor, one axle Magnetraction, solid non-operating couplers, and a three position directional unit that was adjustable from underneath the chassis. There are no variations.
All of the Lionel GE 44-Ton units are designed to work on the tighter radius of O27 Gauge track, but they will run equally well on O Gauge track.
