Steve Neubaum's Album: Athearn Santa Fe Freight F-7 A-B

Got a pair of Athearn belt drive F-7s running. The powered A unit has a Pittman mechanism in it, the B is a dummy. I masked off the rest of the units, spraypainted the side grilles silver, as they were on the prototype. The pilot, frames, and trucks are now black, as on the prototype, and repainted the yellow cab as the yellow was badly chipped. Also cut window "Glass". The windshield had to be cut to fit, and as I have made templates for Athearn F units, is actually pretty easy.
