Locomotive Workshop FA-2

Manufacturer:Locomotive Workshop
Road Name:New York Central (NYC)
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
Locomotive Workshop filled a real need in S scale before American Models began producing a wider variety of diesel locomotives. Among their first offerings was this Alco FA-2/FB-2 set, each sold separately. Each kit consisted of etched brass components, white-metal trucks, and some wire. Additionally, the A unit kit contained a soft-metal casting that comprised the top of the nose and the windshield. Cascade Hobby Products fulfilled a complementary need for power for these locomotives. Cascade's power for each of these locomotives consisted of a Sagami motor, gearbox with Delrin chain and gears, Hobbytown universals, and Lindsay truck gearboxes. The models in the photo were built by Dick, and he used Enhorning decals, MV lenses, and HO-scale Kadee couplers.
