Bachmann Trains is introducing an N scale model of one of the most iconic locomotives ever built, equipped with a Digital Command Control decoder. Most of the locomotive’s details are molded in place on the plastic shell, including grab irons, ladders, and stirrup steps.
Most of the major dimensions of the locomotives match those in drawings I found in official EMD publications in our library.

The N scale locomotives, which come in A and B versions, have sharp paint jobs, are powered by can motors with dual brass flywheels, and have plenty of pulling power. The F7 was one of General Motors Electro-Motive Division’s most successful diesels ever, with more than 3,800 A and B units combined sold in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.


The horns were separately applied, as were the nose’s angled number boxes, which were blank on our Santa Fe sample model and most of the other road names offered.
The glazing isn’t flush in the cab window frames, and the porthole windows lack glazing.
The coupled distance between the N scale A and B unit is 2 scale feet wider than the prototype. The rearmost side intake grill, along with its adjacent sand filler hatch, should be almost a scale foot farther forward, closer to the rivet line. The F units were ubiquitous on North American rails, cementing EMD’s dominance in the diesel market for years to come.
The silver is smooth and even, the red is ­vivid and opaque, and the thin black and yellow stripes between them are without voids, feathering, or overlaps. Built between February 1949 and December 1953, many F7s lasted in revenue service into the 1980s, and some are still working today on short lines and tourist railroads.


Both locomotives had horizontal-slit Farr-Air grills on the upper carbody sides, four horizontal-louver air intakes on the sides, square windows in their end doors, and a 36" dynamic brake fan on the roof.
Phase II F7As had a 48" dynamic brake fan, vertical-slit grills, vertical louvers, and a round porthole in the end door.
All the photographs of Santa Fe passenger F7s I could find had two, while the model has only one.
