||This is a former CNJ GP7. It hasn't had much use and is stored down in Tuckahoe. Apparently its wheel flange thickness is outside the allowable measurement and would need new wheel sets in order to be allowed to pull passenger trains again. I'd love to see this doing sand runs again from Woodmansie to Lakehurst it the NJSL ever is able to get operation going - looks promising though! Unique spotting features are the 'Bug Eye' Classification lights, the electrical cabinet on the end of the long hood for Passenger car power (Similarly to some C&NW and B&M Units), Cab Signals Box (next to cab, 3 Silver latches on it), Bell on the end of short hood and steam generators. As delivered these units were set up for Long Hood Forward, but as shown here the short hood now has the "F" designation.
