This is a Kato 176-2301-DCC N Scale Milwaukee Road FP7A Locomotive #95C with Ready to Run DCC. The Milwaukee Road used a total of three different locomotives to pull the consist between Chicago and Olympia, WA in the early 50's - two electrics (used on electrified portions of the journey) and the EMD FP7 - a specialized variation of the F7A which was lenghtened to accomodate a larger water resevoir for its steam generators (a necessity for long distance passenger service like that of the Olympian Hiawatha). While E units could also have filled this role (and did, in later years), their A1A truck design (spreading their weight and giving them less traction) made them less than ideal for handling the steep grades of the Milwaukee's route through the Rocky Mountains. Single FP7A locomotive, #95C, to accompany the FP7A and F7B two-pack when used with the Milwaukee Road Olympian Hiawatha train set. Each DCC locomotive has been rigorously tested for performance and has had a Train Control Systems DCC board installed to be truly ready-to-run on DCC.Condition:
