USA CF7-athearn RTR diesel loco

Although the details of CF7 are less than SD70ACE, I like it

Nice locos! I do believe the CF7's were re-built from traded-in F7's.....in fact, "CF7" stood for "Converted F7"....

I don't understand the grab bars on the front of the pilot area. Usually a coupler release bar is there, and hoses and such.

Nice looking loco. Check with Detail Associates or Details West to see if there are any detailing parts to add to that beauty.

I got the same one but with yellow hand rails

I seen one done up nicely on YouTube showing off the added details and tsunami sound

I changed the horns added a beacon and a firecracker antenna so far which looks better.

This is the only engine that actually looks good with athearn bulbs
