LGB 20585 Santa Fe F7A Diesel Locomotive "Bluebonnet"

The Santa Fe Railroad F7 diesel locomotives in the typical silver / red "Warbonnet" design are known around the world. There was also a number of these locomotives in the so-called "Bluebonnet" design. Here too, the basic color was silver or stainless steel. The contrasting elements were done in strong sapphire blue, which gave the locomotive a very elegant appearance. Naturally, there were also B units without a cab to go with the A units.

This is a model of an EMD F7 A unit diesel locomotive in an Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad version. The paint scheme and lettering are prototypical for Era III in the so-called "Bluebonnet" version. The locomotive body is partially chrome-plated to show the original locomotive's typical stainless steel look. Both trucks are driven by powerful B├╝hler motors with ball bearings. Traction tires. The locomotive has a built-in mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions that can be controlled digitally. It also has a built-in plug connection on the back to power the speaker in the adjoining B unit from the decoder in the A unit. The locomotive has many separately applied details and the cab doors can be opened.

Length over the couplers 61 cm / 24".


  • Many light functions such as long distance lights or a Mars light.
  • Running Sounds will work in analog mode - B unit not required to produce sound
  • The B unit to go with this locomotive is available under item number 20587. A typical Era III express train such as the famous "Super Chief" can be made with the new Santa Fe cars that are also available.
  • The body is partially chrome-plated to show the original locomotive's typical stainless steel look.

***Please note, LGB's newer version of the F7 A unit (2020 and newer) will not run with previous versions of the F7 B unit.  The 2 pin connection on the A unit has been changed to prevent connecting the 2 together with the older style "2 pin plug".  Running the new A units with previous versions of the B units can harm the circuitry on the F7 A Units.
