Coming soon - the most recognizeable and famous UP Steam Locomotive, the FEF (Four-Eight-Four), coming late 2014/Early 2015 from Kato USA! Featuring a number of revolutionary design innovations, including a coreless motor with dual flywheels for silky-smooth siderod operation at any speed (even a slow crawl!),  Inside bearing wheels (where appropriate), and a special articulated undercarriage on the unique, 14-wheel Tender to allow the locomotive to navigate tighter curves and S-bends!

Model Features:

  • FEF-3: Semi-modern appearance is appropriate for modern layouts behind UP Excursion trains as well as historical layouts operating freight and UP passenger services.
  • FEF-3: New coreless motor design with dual brass flywheels for silky-smooth performance at all speeds, even slow crawls.
  • FEF-3: Special cross-braced shock absorbers equalize the pressure on the locomotive drivers to maximize traction.
  • FEF-3: Illuminated headlight and locomotive numberboards. The FEF tender does not have operational lights, but lighting kits are available for the special Water Tender cars (sold separately)
  • FEF-3: DCC friendly design, allowing for easy drop-in installation of DCC. This locomotive is also available with DCC pre-installed from Kato USA!
  • Water Tenders: Can be upgraded with an optional light board to illuminate marker lights in either direction (sold separately)
  • Water Tenders: The separate "Flag" plate will be prototypically applied to the Jim Adams Car.
  • 11" (282mm) Minimum turning radius
  • All detail parts installed

Lubrication: Unless a locomotive has been sitting for a long period of time without use, Kato locomotives will not need lubrication prior to running. In fact, excessive lubrication can facilitate gunky buildup in your motor and impede performance.

Minimum Curve Radii:

  1. Minimum Curve Radius - Ground Level Curves: R282 (11") Radius.
  2. Minimum Curve Radius - Viaduct Curves: R315 (12-3/8") Radius.
  3. Minimum Curve for Reverse or "S" Curves: R315 (12-3/8") Radius.
