EMD F3 Diesels

Illustrations, technical information courtesy of Katousa.com

Prototype Information:
The F-Unit is probably the most recognized diesel locomotive in North American history. It was found on railroads from East to West and North to South. Eastern railroads favored a "Single Headlight" version of the F3, while Western railroads favored a "Dual Headlight" version.

F3 locomotives were used in both freight and passenger service. For passenger service, it was necessary for the locomotives to have a Steam Generator to provide heat and electricity in the passenger cars. In later years, many F3 locomotives originally intended for passenger services were downgraded to freight duty.

Model Features :
Kato N-Scale F3 locomotives feature revised, DCC Ready Mechanism that will allow drop-in decoder installation. Digitrax decoder in stock / listed immediately below.
This production features an all-new combination of details; it is the first time we will offer the F3 in a Dual Headlight version. Of course, each roadname will have appropriate Steam Generator detail according to each prototype railroad.
Models will feature our smooth Kato mechanism and fully automatic magnetic knuckle couplers. For the first time, the Kato F-Unit will include Lighted Number Boards!
Magnetic knuckle couplers.

New Model - EMD F3A Late Version

This new release shows and F3 LATE version. While retaining the distinctive F3 roof detail, note that the "chicken wire" grill has been replaced with the stailnless steel version as used on EMD F7 production models.
Santa Fe’s F3’s were such successful and long lived units, they received many upgrades, with late era revisions having their distinctive “chicken wire” grills replaced by the stainless steel grills that EMD was fitting on their newer F7 productions. These F3’s ended up looking remarkably similar to their later built F7 cousins, though they still retained their early style roof fans. This is an all new model - the first time in N scale from Kato.
