E7 from Lok-N-Roll arrived just in time for Christmas. A unit is powered, B unit is a dummy.
I like it very much!

Nice paint job. Did they use the original wheels? What is the chassis and trucks?

Looks great, looking forward to seeing a review on your new E-7 locos.

looks interesting but what chassis does it use? i don't know one in TT that is close for an E unit.

OK, you made me open it.
:grin:
The shell is from TT Union. I cannot identify the chassis. Perhaps someone who knows better the modern Tillig chassis can help here.

Hmmm. I would guess it's a NoHab or V180 chassis? Jan, are the truck side frames correct for an E7 (hard to tell from the picture)?

yes and no
The appearance of the truck side frames is correct for E7. But the trucks are not correct for E7. The truck sides look correct but they have been shortened in order to fit the Tillig trucks.
I have compared them to HP Products E7 truck sides.
Or better this way (because I don't know the correct measures of the prototype): if HP Products E7 is correct then this Lok-n-Roll E7 has trucks too short.
My camera is not good for closeup images. I hope that it can wait until January.
I will assemble one HP truck for the picture :grin:

an E7 (and most E units, I think) should be 43' or 109.2mm in TT, between truck centres and the trucks are 14'1" wheelbase, which will be 35.77mm in TT.

oddly, given their duties as high speed passenger locomotives, E units had relatively small wheels. 36" diameter as opposed to 40" on most other EMD locos. I don't really know why ... but i am scoping another mech for an E unit which hopefully won't require too much work and may even have the correct wheels.

The chassis looks like an V180/BR118 or BR119 chassis from Tillig.
BTW the Union-TT E7 shell is almost an inch to short.
