Kato USA "Milwaukee Road" EMD FP7A-F7B Locomotive Set, N Scale

The Milwaukee Road ran passenger trains between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest. Three different locomotives were used to pull the consist between Chicago and Olympia, WA in the early 50's; two electrics (used on electrified portions of the journey) and the EMD FP7. This specialized variation of the F7A, was lengthened to accommodate a larger water reservoir for its steam generators. The Olympian Hiawatha's long distance passenger service necessitated the increased steam generator capacity. While E units could also have filled this role (and did, in later years), their A1A truck design (spreading their weight and giving them less traction) made them less than ideal for handling the steep grades of the Milwaukee's route through the Rocky Mountains.

Pair your Kato N scale DCC A/B set with the Olympian Hiawatha Milwaukee Road 9-Car Passenger Set #74587 (sold separately).
