Re: Frisco FP7 - Multiple Unit Operations?
All F units, from the beginning FT series, produced by EMC (later EMD) were set up for mulitiple unit lash-ups. That was their design intent, to replace a single steam locomotive and its maintenance costs with multiple lashed diesels producing the same or greater tractive effort that were less dependent on continuous maintenance. As result, they were usually sold in sets; ABBA, ABA, AA, AB, etc.
E units were also so equipped from the beginning.
