NERW EMD SD7

This model is a North Eastern Railworks repaint of Michael Stephan’s EMD SD7 by Harry R. Adkins. It’s based on the Conrail model available here: http://www.stephan-michael.de/railsim/p ... sd7cr.html

The SD7 is a 6-axle road switcher diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between February 1952 and November 1953. It had an EMD 567B 16-cylinder engine producing 1,500 horsepower (1.12 MW) for its six traction motors. 188 were built for United States railroads.

That's sweet looking, thanks Harry!

Very nice!!! And a little tricky to drive, compared to the modern braking systems.

I will be glad to reskin the GP7 and SD7 in Lafayette RR colors, but I didn't know if they fit the modern image you guys have seemed to prefer. My thinking is more toward GP38, GP40, SW1500, Dash9, ES44AC, and even SD70's.

Well some of the locals could be using them for switchers and we do have steam facilities in Frankfort. We have our Berk also. So era can be from the end of steam to current or at least 2000?
