This 1500hp diesel electric locomotive worked hard to meet industry demand after the four years of restriction during the war. Universally associated with North American railroads until the 1970's, EMD's F-7 continued to be used for decades as railroads found them inexpensive to operate and maintain. Originally introduced as a freight-hauling unit, by EMD, the F-7 was also frequently used in passenger service. The F-7 wound up being the best selling carbody-style diesel EMD ever produced, selling over 3,700 units to 49 different railroads. They stayed in service until 1970 and assured itself a place in the railroad record books as a triumph of diesel productivity.

HO FA-2 Diesel Sets include Proto Sound 3.0 offering authentic EMD 567 prime mover sounds, first generation diesel horn and bell, crew station sounds, break sounds, and cab chatter. The F7 features superb detailing that characterizes all M.T.H. HO diesels, with added-on details that include legible builder's plates, grab irons, multiple-unit hoses, rooftop lift rings, see-through rooftop fans, steam generator exhaust stack (for passenger versions), windshield wipers, and trucks with separately-applied spring hangers, brake cylinders, and air pip
