I have an undec GP7 w/DBs I'm trying to decide what to do with. It's up for sale now, but if it doesn't sell, I'd like to paint it in the N&W Pevlar blue scheme (I'm definitely modeling 1966).

I did a Google search, but the photos I found were either of Lionel/etc locos (not sure they're prototypical), or the pictures were not at good angles or so-so in quality that I couldn't tell if the engines were really GP7s or even GP9s.

HELP!


Hmm... Kiz woke me from
a deep sleep for THIS...?


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I think you should lease this one.

I did find this photo, but I can't tell if the loco is a GP7 or GP9. Any ideas?

EDIT - Oops, I found out it's a GP40... :facepalm:


Hmm... I can't get back
to sleep...

A quick look thru some photos on rrpicturearchives does not show any GP7 with DB.

It looks like N&W's GP7's came from Wabash, NKP and Illinois terminal so they would be non dynamic brake equipped units...

One possibility would be a Precision National Lease unit, they had a huge fleet of Geeps and they made their way all over the place.

Okay, it looks like I'll paint the loco in the Southern Railway green scheme if I wind up keeping it:

Hmm... might as well go
read the dictionary...

That unit doesn't have DB Kit , might as well stick with the pelvar blue NW if thats the case
