This SPSF 5348 Kato USA EMD SD45 n scale model locomotive is also drop in DCC friendly with the SPSF Merger Santa Fe Kodachrome livery. The SF (Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway) and SP (Southern Pacific Transportation Company) attempted to merge in the 1980s to form the SPSF but the merger was denied. The Santa Fe Railroad later merged with another railroad whilst a year later the Southern Pacific also merged with a different Railroad. As the SF & SP railroads were confident that the merger would be approved, they each began repainting their locomotives into a new unified paint scheme Kodachrome. The SPSF Kodachrome paint scheme red, yellow & black, combining colors from both railroads. The Kodachrome paint scheme resembled the colours used by Kodak, for packaging its slide film. After the merger was denied the railroads attempted to reintroduce their original paint schemes on the locomotives, but some of the Kodachrome locomotives remained with either the SP or SF lettering to identify which railroad they belonged to.
