American Models S-Scale NYC ALCo FA/B-2 

(AC with Power and no Sound in B-Unit)

The ALCO FA was a family of B-B diesel locomotives designed to haul freight trains. The locomotives were built by a partnership of ALCO and General Electric in Schenectady, New York, between January 1946 and May 1959. They were of a cab unit design, and both cab-equipped lead (A unit) FA and cabless booster (B unit) FB models were built.

Externally, the FA and FB models looked very similar to the ALCO PA models produced in the same period. Both the FA and PA models were styled by General Electric's Ray Patten. They shared many of the same characteristics both aesthetically and mechanically. It was the locomotive's mechanical qualities (the ALCO 244 V-12 prime mover) and newer locomotive models from both General Motors Electro-Motive Division (EMD) and General Electric (the partnership with ALCO was dissolved in 1953) that ultimately led to the retirement of the FA/FB locomotive model from revenue service.

FA-2 locomotive features:

  • One of the most accurate nose contours ever made in this model, extra pains were taken to ensure accuracy.
  • Finely cut fans, louvers and other details.
  • Heavy die-cast frame with headlight assembly.
  • Steel wheels, operating coupler and a three position electronic reverse unit on all AC hi-rail versions.
  • Most realistic sound system made (with two speakers AC only).
  • Gription® traction wheels standard.
  • New, closer mounted rear coupler for prototype appearance and tight radius track.
  • A flywheel drive system with the highest efficiency rating ever tested by the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA Bulletin, December, 1983). This drive is incorporated into all of our locomotives.
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Model comes in AC or DC. Please Select Option.

Non-members price is $389.95. NYCSHS Members Price $341.21.  Shipping extra and Ohio residents must pay 8% Ohio sales tax.
