  • WalthersProto® EMD FP7-F7B Set - LokSound5® & DCC - Amtrak® #110 & 161, HO Scale


Great for railroads that preferred four-axle diesels for their passenger runs, prototypes for the WalthersProto EMD FP7 came equipped with a more boiler water capacity on their stretched chassis. Providing enough steam to power train heat and some air conditioning systems on postwar trains taxed the standard water supply of standard EMD F-units set-up for passenger service, prompting EMD to rollout the new FP7 in 1949. Though outwardly similar, FP7s were actually four feet longer to accommodate bigger water tanks with a capacity of 950 US gallons. Standard passenger power into the Amtrak era and beyond (with some also handling freight chores), these WalthersProto HO EMD FP7 replicas are fully assembled and ready for service with:

  • New tooling matches the prototypes extended frame and body

  • Limited edition - one-time run of these engine numbers


  • Railroad-specific details


  • ESU LokSound5® Sound and DCC


  • Five-pole, skew-wound, high-torque, high-efficiency can motor


  • Helical gears with 14:1 ratio for smooth, ultra-quiet running


  • Easy multiple-unit operation


  • Proto MAX™ metal knuckle couplers
