I'd suggest finding a matching Athearn. It will match the running characteristics of your existing A unit.

And that's exactly what I did with my Athearns. I bought a second powered A and swapped the body. I later swapped a powered frame from a GP so I now have an A-B-A set, all powered, PRR. That's the handy thing about Athearn, in that the frames are the same fitment, A to B, or F to GP style. I'll likely try that same philosophy on a Bachmann F7 set in the near future.
