The MTH S scale Electro-Motive Division F3 diesel features the firm's Digital Command System (DCS) and Proto-Sound 3.0 system. The locomotive operates on DCS, Digital Command Control (DCC), alternating current (AC), and direct-current (DC) layouts. The model comes equipped with American Flyer style wheels and couplers, but scale parts are included. (The conversion was detailed in the September 2017 episode of Cody's Office). Watch Model Railroader senior editor Dana Kawala demonstrate some of the model's sound effects using an NCE DCC system.
