Power your freight train over the Appalachian Mountains with this Williams Blue Ridge Hauler Freight Train Set. Powered by a monstrous 4-8-4 J-Class steam locomotive, you should have no trouble getting your freight to its destination.
The EMD F7 locomotive was produced between February 1949 and December 1953 by EMD. Although originally promoted as a freight-hauling unit by EMD, the F7 was also used in passenger service hauling such trains as the Santa Fe’s El Capitan. Many F7s remained in service for decades, as railroads found them economical to operate and maintain.
