EMDs F3s began
showing up on the rails just as World War II was ending. As the wartime
restrictions were being lifted, a tremendous burden was placed on the
railroads as economic prosperity began to take off across the U.S. The days
of the glorious steamers were numbered as many railroads were in dire need
of motive power replacements. Add the economic advantages the F3s offered to
the railroads, and the rest is history. Progress is always served. The 1500
horsepower F3s were remarkably proficient at both heavy freight as well as
fast-passenger service. With a body design that defines what many consider
to be the most attractive diesel ever produced, the F3 offered a large
canvas for the wonderfully imaginative and colorful paint schemes that many
railroads proudly utilized to show off their passenger trains. EMD was to
build 1107 A units and 694 B units before production was changed to the
newer F7s in February of 1949.
