    Default EMD F-units

    I was wondering whether anybody has produced an F-unit with a passenger style pilot, as used by Pennsy? I don't think I have seen any mention of such a thing, but have not been around the sim for that long so could have missed something.

    If the answer turns out to be no, would it be a major job to change the pilot?

    I see that my question has been answered with a post in the screenshot area showing some new units from valleypass including some 'Q' units with passenger pilots.

    Looks really good. Is this to be a part of a new set - all Pennsy? (As in EF15 / EH15 / EF15a - that's F3 / Low geared F3 / F7 for non-PRR people).

    Yes, I'm working with Gaetan over at valleypass.com on this set. I've completed (except for antennae) F-7, FA-2, S-1, S-2 and S-4 models, still need to tackle RS-3 and other assorted Alcos. I wasn't planning on the F-3, but I'll take a look at it.

    I've been making slow, steady progress while the PRR Eastern Region route continues through its beta.

    Sounds even better. AS16's (RS3's, if you prefer) with their fancy bent trainphone supports have a totally unique look. If you are feeling really brave, there was even one with a high short hood (knicknamed the hammerhead) to accomodate a steam generator and dynamic brakes.

    I'd better start to warm up my credit card.
