N Broadway Limited EMD F7B, UP Sound and DCC Paragon 4 #1468B (Armour Yellow, gray, red)
This N Scale EMD F7B from Broadway Limited is ideal for your 1940s to 1980s layout! The prototype 1,500 horsepower EMD F3 is a diesel locomotive built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division between 1949 and 1953.
The F7 was EMD's fourth model in the line of F-unit locomotives, and was by far the best-selling cab unit of all time. The F7 primarily differed from the F3 in internal equipment, but there were some noticeable external changes such as the grills and the dynamic brake hatches. F7's operated in both passenger and freight service, and many of them remained in service for decades.
This detailed EMD F7A model features full Paragon4 sound and DCC for realistic sound and motor control. The Paragon4 sound system works with all Broadway Limited Rolling Thunder advanced sound systems. Other features of this locomotive include a heavy die cast chassis, smooth-running flywheel-equipped drive, directional lighting and magnetic knuckle couplers. It can be operated on all DCC systems as well as on standard DC railroads (with limited sound functionality).
It has wheels profiled to operate on Code 55 and larger rail and curves of 9-3/4" radius and larger are recommended.
