HO Scale: The largest Diesel Loco in the world, scratch built by Andy Dubs, Switzerland

Union Pacifc was famous for their huge Locomotives, from Steam to Turbine and Diesel. The DDA40X "Centennial" was the largest Diesel Loco built by GM (EMD) in 1969 for Union Pacific.
Different model manufacturers produced this particular diesel loco in N, HO and O scale.

In 2013, Athearn Genesis made the DDA40X in HO scale with sound (length = 35 cm). This was the starting point for the extra large locos.

UP DDDD40AA (2 cabs, 16 axles, length = 59 cm)
