EMD FT Diesel A/B Sets



Prototype Information
Paint Scheme / Version Information
  • Santa Fe Chatwhisker II - The first Santa Fe road freight diesel scheme was yellow and blue with a thin red pinstripe. Later, the pinstripe was eliminated behind the side cab doors, creating this variation commonly called "Catwhisker II". The InterMountain A unit features the large side number boxes and single headlight. The B unit includes the extra porthole on one side. These models feature Phase I (unique to the Santa Fe) dynamic brake hatches. Roof etched metal parts are blackened, and the etched metal grille covers on the side are painted, just like the prototype.
  • Great Northern - One of the most popular diesel paint schemes of all time was Great Northern Green & Orange "Empire Builder" scheme. The first InterMountain releaseof GN FTs are modeled after the units the railroad ordered to handle its passenger trains and feature single headlights, Phase 3 dynamic brakes and large side number boxes on the A unit. The B unit does not have the extra porthole.

Starting with the Santa Fe Warbonnet, all FTs will be supplied with the new and improved snap in drawbar. InterMountain has provided two different styles, one molded as below with a simulated pair of couplers and one that does not have the simulated couplers. Both snap into a post on the B Unit and can be easily 'unsnapped'.
If you purchased a set of the Catwhiskers or Great Northerns from N Scale Supply please contact us or InterMountain directly and you can obtain the replacement drawbar.

Each unit is packed in a jewel case inside a cardboard outer box.
