C&NW lives!
Hi guys, I'm looking for an F7A in CNW paint- it doesn't matter which scheme as long as it's CNW. These are the three companies that seem to have the best F7s, and was wondering if anyone had a personal preference for each one.

That's a good question. I'm looking at buying some Athern F7A's and B's myself. Interstingly VIA is unavailable as an A unit (only dummy), but the B unit is powered!

I have a Stewart FT A/B set, purchased undec, waiting to go into Red Oak and Western livery. However, that doesn't stop me from running them and they run great!
