Here is a Kato 176-1308 N Scale D&RGW EMD F3B Powered Diesel Locomotive. The F-Unit is probably the most recognized diesel locomotive in North American history. It was found on railroads from East to West and North to South. Eastern railroads favored a Single Headlight version of the F3, while Western railroads favored a Dual Headlight version. F3 locomotives were used in both freight and passenger service. For passenger service, it was necessary for the locomotives to have a Steam Generator to provide heat and electricity in the passenger cars. In later years, many F3 locomotives originally intended for passenger services were downgraded to freight duty. The Kato EMD F3 comes in both A and B (cabless) variations, and is retooled from earlier variations of the F-unit locomotive chassis to make it DCC friendly. Passenger units can be identified by their Steam Generators vs. freight units which lack this detail. F3 locomotives feature: DCC friendly mechanism, A-unit LED has directional headlights and illuminated number boards, Locomotives have a powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers, and they are Drop in DCC compatible with the Train Control Systems K0D8 series and Digitrax DN163K0B.
