NP ‘1954 NCL’ F5A – DCC-Deposit Only

Out of stock



Any available stock may be announced when product arrives.


This selection is for the SINGLE F5A, Road #6505C

Broadway Limited will be producing these exclusively for Lowell Smith Signature Series for use in RailSmith production of our 1954 North Coast Limited.  The colors will match the NPRHA’s drift cards so these will go perfect with our 1954 North Coast Limited train set.    In this release, there are only TWO engines being produced, This A unit and a single (powered) B unit!     Be sure to check out that as well.

Originally in 1947 the NP’s F3’s were delivered in A-B-B sets. It was determined that configuration created difficulty in turning the sets, so more F cab units were purchased to replace the trailing B units, thus changing the engine sets to the A-B-A configuration. By the time this Loewy Two-Tone-Green paint was applied, most of the ‘A-B-A sets’ had been broken up to serve as needed over the system.

Although this engine was a late model F3, the NP referred to them as F-5’s. The NP was the only railroad to give such a designation.

 In this selection, road number 6505C, will come equipped with DCC and BLI’s Paragon 4 Sound. This is a deposit only with the balance due payable before delivery, which is expected to be Q4 2024.  Total cost should be close to $264.

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

Thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you do for the modeling community. I can honestly say that my enjoyment of the hobby has benefited greatly because of you.


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.


As a retiree of the Walt Disney Company I look forward to upcoming releases of the Disney Family Museum and Disneyland series.  Keep up the excellent work!
