NP ‘1947 NCL’ Power F5A

Out of stock


This run size has been set and cannot be changed. These will not last long.

This production is planned for Summer 2021!


This selection is for the SINGLE F5A.

Broadway Limited will be producing these exclusively for Lowell Smith Signature Series for use in RailSmith production of the 1947 North Coast Limited and the Mainstreeter  Series collection. The colors will match the NPRHA’s drift cards so these will go perfect with your Mainstreeter ‘Pine Tree’ train set. 

This engine was a late model F3 however the NP referred to them as F-5’s.  Road number 6504C, will come equipped with DCC and Sound!

The other  pair offered at this time includes F-3A & B , road number 6504A, and the B unit is marked as 6504B. The B unit in that set is a ‘dummy’ unit with no power mechinisim. Be sure to check those out as well to have a complete A-B-A lash-up!

With the very successful F unit production last year with Broadway Limited’s run of our SP&S and also our OCS NS units, we have very high confidence for this run as well. Confidence based on customers overwhelming positive comments of how the BLI units look and run!

If you have a reservation for these from the prior announcement, please email us for the link to activate your special unique deposit.

Thank you for your patience for this long-awaited release!

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.


Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

I received my #99 business card in the mail today. It looks superb. Thank you for another wonderful job. You are really filling a niche.


Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K.

You are in my book one of the very best.


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.
