Picture(Click to Zoom) Description
F3 Units have been referred to as heralding the end of the era of steam... However it was not uncommon to see the two working on the same lines. F units would even be used as "helpers" to assist steam locomotives on steep grades.
F3s were, for a time, the primary motive power for the famous California Zephyr passenger train. Here, a D&RGW F3-pulled Westbound CZ train crosses paths with its Eastbound counterpart, the midpoint in a long but scenic journey.
