Diesel locomotive General Motors EMD-F7
The American GM-EMD Series F-7 locomotives are diesel-electric locomotives of the F series from the manufacturer, the Electro-Motive Division (EMD), part of General Motors Diesel. The EMD F7 is the successor to the Series GM-EMD F3 The locomotives were used by various railway companies in the USA but also in other countries such as Canada. These locomotives were originally intended for hauling freight trains, but were then also used for hauling passenger trains such as the "Super Chief", "El Capitan" and the "Santa Fé".

Development and Deployment:
The GM-EMD F7 locomotives were diesel electric locomotives from the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors and General Motors Diesel and were the successors of the construction series EMD-F3. The locomotives had a power output of 1,100 KW. They were built by EMD in the USA and General Motors Canada in the period 1949-1953. Of these, 3717 units (2285 A-units and 1432 B-units) were built by Electro-Motive Division (EMD) in the USA and 127 units (80 A-units and 47 B-units) by General Motors in Canada. The locomotives were available as an A-unit (with cab) and a B-unit (without cab). The locomotives were most versatile due to their double traction capabilities. Two A-units with control car and several B-units without control cars could be coupled as required for suitable train power in traction and be controlled synchronously from either end.

The EMD-F7 locomotives were still widely used on the North American Railways until the 1970s. In Canada they were used for an even longer period of time.
