Add a unique chapter of railroad history to your HO layout with these WalthersProto GP7 passenger service diesels! In 1949, EMD found exactly what railroads wanted in its new General Purpose diesel with the unveiling of the GP7. The CNW was among the buyers who found them an ideal choice for passenger service, and purchased a pair of former EMD demonstrators in August of 1950. Based on these units that remained in service to the early 1960s, railroad-specific features of these WalthersProto replicas include:
  • Metal sunshades
  • Short-hood forward operation
  • Steam generator with piping
  • Leslie A-200 air horn
  • Cab wind deflectors
  • Bolted-style handrails
  • Drop steps
  • 1600-gallon fuel/water tank
Other standard features include:
