Western Pacific F7B Freight #918C

Considering the longevity of Western Pacific’s F7 freight units, they changed very little during their careers. However, the changes and modifications that were made, were remarkably consistent unit to unit. That may have something to do with the fact that the WP had only one big diesel shop in Stockton California. The same guys doing the same thing, equals consistency.

The details that make these engines unique: We all are familiar with the steam engine headlight mounted to the rear roof of the b-units, but there is more. All of these units have the WP modified large fuel tanks and partial side skirts. The B-units have a couple of extra roof grabs down by the back-up light.

Some people may say that these engines are painted in the “Pumpkin 2” scheme. Whatever you would like to call it, we WP guys know that it seems that there were never enough all-orange Fs around to make up a complete lash up. To help with this we will offer one of our A/B sets with and all-orange A-unit (913a) and an orange and silver B (924c).
