agree with you 100%! Chip's article on the F-Units was great.
Yes another good issue. Chip's article on the F-units fit in very well with the Athearn/Genesis release of the Penn Central F7s.
BTW I also received as a back issue the Diesel Era magazine that featured Penn Central F-units. Great article with lots of photos.
Back when I was watching Penn Central I did not see too many F-units but a couple of them did roll by on the Middle Division through Tyrone, PA.
I recall an FP7 leading SD units on a coal train, F-units mixed within a consist, vague memories of 3 F-units pushing a westbound ore train, and finally a set of F-units in the old Tyrone yard getting ready to move some old boxcars out of storage.
