HO scale ALCo FA-1 & FB-1

 

 

Rapido is excited to announce the next in our series of classic ALCo locomotives: the ALCo FA-1.

 

Between January 1946 and October 1950 a total of 440 FA-1s and 240 FB-1s were built by the American Locomotive Company (ALCo) and their Canadian subsidiary, the Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW). They were originally sold to twenty-five railroads in the US, Canada and Mexico. The FA-1 (and its matching booster, the FB-1) was rated at 1500 horsepower and was designed primarily as a freight hauler.

 

In a market that was becoming dominated by EMD products, the FA-1 came in a distant second due in part to reliability issues with its rushed-to-market 244 prime mover. Still, they were popular with several roads and could be found at the head of freights into the late 1960s.

 

Following on to our FPA-4, FA-2 and PA loco models, our new FA-1 continues the Rapido tradition for accurate ALCo cab units with unsurpassed detail.

 

Thanks and credit to Joe Shine.
