4-8-8-4 big boy just months before pearl harbor the american locomotive company delivered the first big boy to the union pacific railroad the up’s department of research and mechanical standards had designed the locomotive for a specific task to pull a 3600-ton train unassisted over the wasatch mountains in utah while the big boy is often cited as the biggest steam locomotive ever built in fact it is not the norfolk western’s y6 and a the duluth missabe iron range’s yellowstones and the chesapeake and ohio’s alleghenys were all in the same league and some exceeded the big boy’s weight and power but in the battle for hearts and minds the big boy won perhaps it was the name simple and direct scrawled on a locomotive under construction by an alco shop worker maybe it was timing as the big boys hit the road just when america needed symbols to rally around maybe the up’s publicity department 10 just did a better job of telling the world what

alco fa-1 all proto-sound models include onboard dcc receiver the american locomotive company one of the nation’s premier steam locomotive builders joined forces with schenectady new york neighbor general electric to build the first standardized diesel-electric locomotives in the 1920s but when the diesel revolution began in earnest after world war ii dependability problems with alco’s model 244 prime mover doomed the company to forever playing second fiddle to industry leader emd the brawny good looks of alco’s fa and pa cab units however have endeared them to railfans and modelers for more than half a century designed to compete with emd’s ft four axel freight locomotive the fa-1 contained many of the same design elements but used a new 12-cylinder 244 engine many would argue that alco’s fa-1 and successor fa-2 diesels were both handsomer and more powerful looking than their major competitors emd’s f3 and f7 “covered wagons.” a

emd f3 all proto-sound models include onboard dcc receiver from 1942-1945 electro motive division’s f-unit was the only road freight diesel built in america while the war production board limited competitors alco and baldwin to diesel switcher and steam locomotive production during world war ii emd’s 1,350 hp ft became a runaway best-seller by war’s end electro motive had a lead over its competitors that would last until they closed their doors with production restrictions lifted and the u.s economy humming with pent-up demand railroads clamored for new diesels to replace a steam fleet exhausted by wartime traffic in july 1946 emd introduced a new model f-unit the f3 horsepower was upgraded to 1,500 and lessons learned on the ft gave the f3 better reliability and lower maintenance under the hood throbbed features • intricately detailed abs bodies • metal chassis • moveable roof fans • metal body side grilles • 2 engineer cab figures
