    hi,
    I recently purchased a Proto 2000 FA-2 unit in Via Rail colours for my son, (unpowered) real good price. When I got home, I saw a FA-1 (powered) unit in CNR colours on E-Bay. Wondering if the FA-2 shell will fit on the FA-1 chassis (frame). Did both units use the same frame? Planning on using the CNR shell as a dummy unit if possible.
    Thanks,

    No. At least not if they're done to scale. The FA-2 is a scale 4' longer.
