SP&S F-7 Rd 803 (Deposit)
Arriving July 2023
Announcing an extremely limited run of custom decorated SP&S F-7 #803
Broadway Limited has been commissioned to decorate their new and amazing F unit for the SP&S Railway. This is the first time that the 802 is offered in any scheme. An interesting story about the 802, is that technically it is a late model F-3. Notice that the intake grills are the F-7 style.
Offered in the hour glass scheme which it wore in one form or another from its delivery in 1948 until the Broad Stripe paint was applied in 1968. We offer this F unit at the same time as the GP-9 passenger units as it was not uncommon for them to be seen together in a consist. Also of note, a typical SP&S passenger train on the water-level route along the Columbia River, would only need two units to pull that train of about 9 to 13 cars.
These new Broadway Limited F units come with Dual Mode sound. These engines run on DC or DCC. To operate the horn or bell with DC, Broadway has a add-on control called DC Master that sells for about $40. If you need one please let us know.
Production on this release is limited to just one road number this time. This selection is for a deposit only for SP&S 803. You will receive a final billing when delivery is close. This deposit will be applied to the total cost, which we anticipate to be close to $269.
Expect the SP&S 802 & 803 in early 2023.
Please reserve now to assure you get this special engine!
Silver – $139 DC version, Gold – $239 DCC with sound
