The Electro-motive division of General Motors (EMD) made the most popular of all first generation engines ever made, with over 4200 units sold. The combination of ease of maintenance and power finally evolved to the point where railroads could rely on diesels for all service requirements with the introduction of the F-7. Our model is the FP-7, which EMD called a heavy passenger/ freight locomotive. These were equipped with a 600 gallon water tank and boiler for heating passenger cars. The extra 4 feet and weight made these a favorite with engineers as the weight provided better traction for its 1500 hp, especially in mountainous terrain. 376 were built in many road names from 1949 to 1953. Some are still running today.
Our B unit is a standard late model unit with dynamic breaking and "Far-Air" grills (sam as A units above). These grills were usually unpainted in stainless steel.
Note: "A" units are the front units with windshields and side cab windows. "B" units are the units behind with the side port hole windows only. "B" units are sold as powered or with sound units installed. Sound volume and sensitivity to the transformer used can be adjusted, instructions are included.

Our standard units and "DX" models are shipped tested and ready to run.
