Some example of modeling art of F Units created from undecorated Highliner shells and Athearn Genesis power chassis's. The Western Pacific F7A &F7B models shown below are from modeler Lee Freeman of Southern California. Models represent the early 70's era.  Both models were detailed with the DS-309 and DS-310 detail sets, PL-313 snow plow pilot, MU-295 and FT-315 fuel tank extension detail kit as well as other parts. Both the A & B models have the Soundtraxx DSD100LC sound decoders for the enhanced realism. Enjoy the model photos.
