Video: Rapido Trains N scale New Haven FL9 locomotive

Having trouble viewing this video?   Please visit our Video FAQ page
Although it looked like any other F unit diesel-electric locomotive, the EMD FL9 had pickup shoes on its trucks that allowed it to operate as a straight electric locomotive on the New Haven line into Grand Central Terminal. Rapido Trains offers this detailed N scale model of an FL9 that includes a feature-laden ESU LokSound Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder. Check out the locomotive in this demo on the Model Railroader workshop test track.
