While the War Production Board limited competitors Alco and Baldwin to diesel switcher and steam locomotive production during World War II, EMD's 1,350 hp FT became a runaway best-seller. By war's end, Electro Motive had a lead over its competitors that would last until they closed their doors.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWith production restrictions lifted and the U.S. economy humming with pent-up demand, railroads clamored for new diesels to replace a steam fleet exhausted by wartime traffic. In July 1946, EMD introduced a new model F-unit, the F3. Horsepower was upgraded to 1,500 and lessons learned on the FT gave the F3 better reliability and lower maintenance. Under the hood throbbed an improved 567-series V-12 engine. With 567 inches of displacement per cylinder, this same engine would power virtually the entire first generation of EMD diesel locomotives.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe F3 hit the market in an era when almost every boy in America wanted toy trains for Christmas, and F3 models quickly became a hot topic in letters to Santa. Such was the desire of railroads for publicity that Lionel® convinced the Santa Fe, the New York Central, and EMD to share the tooling costs for its top-of-the line F3. Even today, half a century later, the Santa Fe F-unit remains an icon of railroading to the American public.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCapture the excitement of the first-generation diesel era with this full-scale Premier model. With two flywheel-equipped motors, the M.T.H. F3 duplicates the bulldog tenacity of its prototype. Proto-Sound 3.0 offers authentic EMD 567 prime mover sounds, a first-generation diesel horn and bell, crew and station sounds, adjustable smoke volume, and the ability to maintain any speed down to 3 scale miles per hour. Our model features the see-through \"chicken wire\" screens and rectangular rooftop dynamic brake grilles that characterize most F3s, as well as a host of added-on details - including legible builder's plates, grab irons, multiple-unit hoses, rooftop lift rings, see-through rooftop fans, steam generator exhaust stack (for passenger car heating), windshield wipers, and trucks with separately-applied spring hangers, brake cylinders, and air pipes.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e","published_at":"2021-11-04T18:31:20-04:00","created_at":"2021-11-04T18:31:20-04:00","vendor":"MTH Electric Trains","type":"Diesel Locomotive","tags":["200-500","3-rail","diesel-locomotive","in-stock","lehigh-valley","mth-2020-v1","mth-electric-trains","premier","scale_o"],"price":45995,"price_min":45995,"price_max":45995,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":49995,"compare_at_price_min":49995,"compare_at_price_max":49995,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":41256659976344,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"20-21595-1","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"MTH 20-21595-1 - F-3 A Unit Diesel Engine \"Lehigh Valley\" #512 w\/ PS3 (Hi-Rail Wheels) - Custom Run for MrMuffin'sTrains","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":45995,"weight":2223,"compare_at_price":49995,"inventory_quantity":5,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/IMG_8630_d7d43f74-44a3-4ee7-8ade-9f743ad77f2d.jpg?v=1658786609","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/20-21595-1.jpg?v=1658786609"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/IMG_8630_d7d43f74-44a3-4ee7-8ade-9f743ad77f2d.jpg?v=1658786609","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":30037138112758,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.331,"height":933,"width":1242,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/IMG_8630_d7d43f74-44a3-4ee7-8ade-9f743ad77f2d.jpg?v=1658786609"},"aspect_ratio":1.331,"height":933,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/IMG_8630_d7d43f74-44a3-4ee7-8ade-9f743ad77f2d.jpg?v=1658786609","width":1242},{"alt":null,"id":29023295504630,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":3.217,"height":746,"width":2400,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/20-21595-1.jpg?v=1658786609"},"aspect_ratio":3.217,"height":746,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/20-21595-1.jpg?v=1658786609","width":2400}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ctable width=\"100%\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eAnnounced Date:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003eMay 2020\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eReleased Date:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003eJuly 2022\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eIndividually Boxed:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003eNo - 2 to a case\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRoad Name: Lehigh Valley\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRoad Number: 512\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eProduct Line: Premier\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eScale: O Scale\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eEstimated Release: \u003cspan mce-data-marked=\"1\"\u003eFeb 2022\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFormer Product #\u003cspan\u003e 20-21LV-1\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eProduct #

Overview:

From 1942-1945, Electro Motive Division's F-unit was the only road freight diesel built in America. While the War Production Board limited competitors Alco and Baldwin to diesel switcher and steam locomotive production during World War II, EMD's 1,350 hp FT became a runaway best-seller. By war's end, Electro Motive had a lead over its competitors that would last until they closed their doors.

With production restrictions lifted and the U.S. economy humming with pent-up demand, railroads clamored for new diesels to replace a steam fleet exhausted by wartime traffic. In July 1946, EMD introduced a new model F-unit, the F3. Horsepower was upgraded to 1,500 and lessons learned on the FT gave the F3 better reliability and lower maintenance. Under the hood throbbed an improved 567-series V-12 engine. With 567 inches of displacement per cylinder, this same engine would power virtually the entire first generation of EMD diesel locomotives.

The F3 hit the market in an era when almost every boy in America wanted toy trains for Christmas, and F3 models quickly became a hot topic in letters to Santa. Such was the desire of railroads for publicity that Lionel® convinced the Santa Fe, the New York Central, and EMD to share the tooling costs for its top-of-the line F3. Even today, half a century later, the Santa Fe F-unit remains an icon of railroading to the American public.

Capture the excitement of the first-generation diesel era with this full-scale Premier model. With two flywheel-equipped motors, the M.T.H. F3 duplicates the bulldog tenacity of its prototype. Proto-Sound 3.0 offers authentic EMD 567 prime mover sounds, a first-generation diesel horn and bell, crew and station sounds, adjustable smoke volume, and the ability to maintain any speed down to 3 scale miles per hour. Our model features the see-through "chicken wire" screens and rectangular rooftop dynamic brake grilles that characterize most F3s, as well as a host of added-on details - including legible builder's plates, grab irons, multiple-unit hoses, rooftop lift rings, see-through rooftop fans, steam generator exhaust stack (for passenger car heating), windshield wipers, and trucks with separately-applied spring hangers, brake cylinders, and air pipes.
