Lionel 6-8580, 6-8581, 6-8582 Illinois Central F-3 ABA Diesel Set 



In 1946, EMD began production of one of the most famous and recognizable locomotives of all time, the F-3 diesel. Proclaimed as the "widest range locomotive in history", a record production of 1800 units sold in just two years.

Demonstrating remarkable proficiency at both fast-passenger and heavy-freight service, the F-3's flexibility cemented it as a mainstay on most large railroads. These 1,500 horsepower units were so successful that the f-3 is credited with accelerating many railroads' path to dieselization. The engine's initial field tests were conducted among 20 different railroads winning over many diesel doubters with their fuel efficiency and easy maintenance.

The F-3's sleek, streamlined shape proved to be the perfect design for the colorful, imaginative paint schemes many railroads used on their locomotives as a way to showcase their passenger trains.
