So who we got left that has run an F-unit
Permalink  
 


The F-unit (FT-F3-F7-F9 and the FP's) dominated my

youth (1960's) and for me it lasted another 20+ years

with the BN Sumas Branch running the last F-units

in summer of 1981. Hated to see them go but I was

ready for the modern era of locomotives as well.

I will aways remember their sound "in numbers"

(meaning 4 or 7 of them) assulting a grade wide-open throttle.

Know YouTube has some great videos of F-unit lashups

and the noise they make.
