The EMD F7, a 1500 horsepower multi-purpose Diesel-electric locomotive produced by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors, is probably the most recognized diesel locomotive in North American history and was found on railroads from the East to West & North to South. Although originally promoted as a freight-hauling unit, the F7 was also used in passenger service hauling famous trains such as the Santa Fe Super Chief & the Great Northern Empire Builder. Many remained in service for decades, as railroad companies found them economical to operate & maintain. EMD - Electro-Motive Diesel, have earned a reputation for quality, service innovation.

The ATSF - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway also known as Santa Fe, was one of the larger railroads in the United States. The Santa Fe Railway was named after the capital of New Mexico but never actually reached Santa Fe, as it was too difficult to lay the tracks because the terrain surrounding Santa Fe was unsuitable. Santa Fe was one of the pioneers in intermodal freight service. A bus line allowed the company to extend passenger transportation service to areas not accessible by rail. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway merged with the Burlington Northern Railroad to form the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway on December 31 1996. The Red Warbonnet paint scheme is reminiscent of a Native American ceremonial headdress. The scheme consisted of a red bonnet which wrapped around the front of the unit and was bordered by a yellow stripe & black pinstripe. The extent of the bonnet varied according to the locomotive model & was largely determined by the shape & length of the locomotives body. The remainder of the unit was either painted silver or was composed of stainless-steel panels. The Model Railway system is Ready for DCC if a Digital railway layout is required.
