K-25971   Western Pacific F-3 A-B-A, all powered, horn Western Pacific
    $499.95 ea.    


Put some muscle into your layout with our powerful F Unit Diesel Engines. Each Engine Unit is powered with dual motors so no extra dummy weight slows these engines down. When operating as an A-B-A Unit, all six motors work in sync to pull an amazing 4.4 lbs in drawbar pull tests! This force translates into the ability to pull 125 Classic freight cars on the layout.
The innovative PowerLink™, system connects all six motors to one electronic reversing unit. Since this common E-Unit coordinates all motors, smooth operation is ensured and all six motors pull in the same direction at the same time.

The Mars light, located below the headlight, is a common feature of the F-3 Diesels. The Mars light is a moving beam that sweeps back and forth across the track to offer warning that a speeding locomotive is approaching. The Mars light was considered standard equipment on many high-speed diesel trains. The operation of the Scale Mars light on the front of these F-3 A Units has been accurately reproduced — the light oscillates back and forth as the engine barrels down the tracks. This safety feature is especially fun for night railroading.
