Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. The locomotive has a factory-installed smoke generator with dynamic smoke exhaust, and it can be controlled digitally. It also has many separately applied details. The NEM pockets can be fixed in place using shims included with the locomotive for operation with knuckle couplers. A pilot with a small cutout for the front, brake hoses, and two shims for the NEM pocket are included.
