    I wonder if anyone would be up for doing a FA for these with HEP Muffler, HEP Plugs, C&NW nose bell, etc?

    Sadly, the NJT F7 fleet didn't perform all that well. But considering their heritage, that doesn't surprise me much. C&NW wasn't called, Cheap & Nothing Wasted for no reason. They didn't really take the best care of the commuter F units. They had the wrong parts installed in the engine and electrical system and that caused them to perform horribly on NJT. https://www.railroad.net/viewtopic.php?t=6282

    Michelle,

    In order to get the side lettering to appear correctly, you'll have to squish it to 50% of it's original length, keeping the height the same.
