That would be a standard F-7 B unit, no?  The frame looks shorter than the FP A, and there doesn't appear to be boiler equipment.

Well, if you believe Intermountain's website, you still have about 3 months to wait...

First 3 road names (ATSF, Clinchfield, CSX) are listed for June (originally April), with the second 3 (MRL, E-L, Conrail) listed for July (originally May).

I also noticed the MB Klein's & 4N-Scale's websites have future reservation listings for a second batch of road names (SF Warbonnet, E-L, Conrail, SCL, Family Lines & BNSF) that I see no listing for on the Intermountain site.

I saw the undecorated shells last year at the NTS & N-Scale conventions; I'm interested to see what the painted models look like.

I need to find a photo, but I believe that the MILW used these for freight toward the end of their lives.

They are clearly labeled F7B. IIRC there are no "FP7B"s, plenty of room in there for a SG if desired.

Those reading ones are really tempting.

ACL too.

This opens up a whole world of VERY modelable passenger service...

Yes, MILW did use the FP7's for freight service--certainly after Amtrak and quite likely before, what with the decrease in passenger service. They were FP's, after all, and some retained their yellow colors.  I'll have to check my photo archives.
