Background Information:

A few years ago RailPower Products sold an HO CF7 Shell and provided a listing of the commonly available HO parts required to complete the locomotive.  This shell and these items are on sale here as a kit.  When completed you will have an HO operating CF7 diesel loco for your use.  All parts are new and never used.

Here is a description of the CF7 Loco Kit for sale:

RailPower HO undecorated plastic CF7 shell (angled cab roof) with associated detail parts.

RailPower instruction sheet complete with assembly steps and templates for making all loco handrails.

All locomotive hand rail stanchions and material needed to make the handrails for the CF7.

RailPower locomotive metal frame.  This frame saves you the trouble of milling down an Athearn F7 frame to the right thickness (which was the original method for building this locomotive).

Athearn F7 new drive train, motor, motor mounts and pair of four wheel trucks.  These all fit the RailPower locomotive frame described above.  Truck and coupler detail parts also included.

Miniatures by Eric diesel locomotive detail parts for the radio antenna, windshield wipers, horn and rerail frogs.  All parts are cast metal.

Circuitron Diesel cab flashing strobe light complete with track power adaptor.  Strobe mounts on roof of CF7 cab.

Clear plastic to be used for cab windows.

Also included are a collection of articles on building and painting the CF7 from Model Railroader Magazine plus a copy of the book “CF7 Locomotives From Clebourne to Everywhere” by Cary F. Poole.  This book lists every CF7 ever built by owner and contains CF7 diagrams, specifications and color photographs of many of the CF7’s produced.  The book itself originally retailed for $24.99 US.

The price for the complete list of items above is 80 US$ plus actual shipping cost to your location.
