ALL WP UNITS FEATURE:

Considering the longevity of Western Pacific's F7 freight units theychanged very little during their careers. However the changes andmodifications that were made were remarkably consistent unit to unit.That may have something to do with the fact that the WP had only one bigdiesel shop in Stockton California. The same guys doing the same thingequals consistency.

The details that make these engines unique: We all are familiar with thesteam engine headlight mounted to the rear roof of the b-units but thereis more. All of these units have the WP modified large fuel tanks andpartial side skirts. The B-units have a couple of extra roof grabs downby the back-up light.

The A-units have a full compliment of grabs on the engineer's side of thenose. The 914a and 915d had m/u connectors to the left of the headlight.The 913a a future member of the Fab Four has the SP style plow pilotthat she still carries today.

Some people may say that these engines are painted in the Pumpkin 2scheme. Whatever you would like to call it we WP guys know that it seemsthat there were never enough all-orange Fs around to make up a completelash up. To help with this we will offer one of our A/B sets with andall-orange A-unit (913a) and an orange and silver B (924c).

EMD F-units were a line of diesel-electric locomotives produced betweenNovember 1939 and November 1960 by General Motors Electro-Motive Divisionand General Motors-Diesel Division. Final assembly for all F-units was atthe GM-EMD plant at La Grange Illinois and the GMDD plant in LondonOntario Canada. They were sold to railroads throughout the UnitedStates Canada and Mexico.

Structurally the locomotive was a carbody unit with the body as themain load-bearing structure designed like a bridge truss and coveredwith cosmetic panels. The so-called bulldog nose was a distinguishingfeature of the locomotive's appearance and made a lasting impression inthe mind of the traveling public.

The F-units were the most successful first generation road (main line)diesel locomotives in North America and were largely responsible forsuperseding steam locomotives in road freight service. Before thisdiesel units were mostly only built as switcher locomotives and onlyused in rail yards.

F-units were sometimes known as covered wagons due to the similarityin appearance of the roof of an F-unit to the canvas roof of a Conestogawagon an animal-drawn wagon used in the westward expansion of the UnitedStates during the late 18th and 19th centuries. When a train's locomotiveconsist included only F-units the train would then be called a wagontrain. These two usages are still popular with the railfan community.
