Featured video: Posted 9/20 - A video preview of the upcoming FEF-3 Excursion and Freight locomotives (and their differences) as well as a closer look at the upcoming Operation North Pole Christmas Train!
Union Pacific Heavy Steam - FEF-3 Locomotives shipping at the end of September!
The Union Pacific FEF (Four Eight Four), along with the Southern Pacific GS-4 is easily one of the most recognizable US steam prototypes still in operation today. The FEF-3 series of steam locomotives was delivered in 1944 and were the last, and some of the largest, steam locomotives delivered for use by the Union Pacific. Operated solely by the Union Pacific, the FEF's were intended primarily to be passenger locomotives but the UP's large fleet of available diesels meant that the FEF's were put to work in secondary passenger and fast freight service.
This 2016 Product run will re-issue the Excursion version FEF-3 #844 along with a brand new paint variation - the Freight #838, which has matte paint, a darker smokebox, and blackened wheels!
These locomotives will also be available w/ DCC + Sound by request, contact your local hobby shop!
