PROTOTYPE INFO:


EMD F-units were a line of diesel-electric locomotives produced between November
1939 and November 1960 by General Motors Electro-Motive Division and General
Motors-Diesel Division. Final assembly for all F-units was at the GM-EMD plant
at La Grange, Illinois and the GMDD plant in London, Ontario, Canada. They were
sold to railroads throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.


Structurally, the locomotive was a carbody unit, with the body as the main
load-bearing structure, designed like a bridge truss and covered with cosmetic
panels. The so-called bulldog nose was a distinguishing feature of the
locomotives appearance, and made a lasting impression in the mind of the
traveling public.


The F-units were the most successful first generation road (main line) diesel
locomotives in North America, and were largely responsible for superseding steam
locomotives in road freight service. Before this, diesel units were mostly only
built as switcher locomotives, and only used in rail yards.


F-units were sometimes known as covered wagons, due to the similarity in
appearance of the roof of an F-unit to the canvas roof of a Conestoga wagon, an
animal-drawn wagon used in the westward expansion of the United States during
the late 18th and 19th centuries. When a trains locomotive consist included
only F-units, the train would then be called a wagon train. These two usages are
still popular with the railfan community.
