Interesting choice for a prototype. Definitely looking forward to the end result.
While the only major RR to use CF7's was ATSF, who remanufactured them out of old F units, eventually they were sold to many shortline railroads, and some are still in use today. I know of several here in Florida, the Florida Northern in Ocala has a couple (although they are lettered for sister road Florida Central), and I believe another affilliate, Florida Central has at least one as well. All three roads are owned by Pinsley, a group that has several RR's scattered through the USA.
Please keep us advised of any progress on this project.

Yes, the main attraction was all the short line owner / operators. I've had the CF-7 book for many years and when it looked like I could get the project going I think I printed out something like 200+ photos from the RRpicturearchives web site. Went through 3 or 4 sets of cartridges and just about wore the old Canon printer out. Bottom line - you can have them in just about any colour of the rainbow you like and somebody probably owned one.
And of course - I'm going to have to paint one up in this scheme http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... ?id=369253

Santa Cruz Big Trees( Roaring Camp Felton Ca) has a couple of the CF7's. Last time I looked they were in Maroon paint, when they showed up years ago in an SP freight consist they were a much prettier ATSF blue and yellow....DaveB

Cool loco kit, i'm really interested.
I found a fitting article in Railroad Model Craftsman Nov. 1985 about the Santa Fe CF7.

Not TT scale but HO. These were produced by Rail Power Products. They were designed to fit on the HO scale Athearn F7 chassis.
