Yes, yes, yes! Once again, the mighty Warbonnet lives on!
on August 19, 2014
Everything came out well as I wanted. The Bachmann Santa Fe F7 looks more prototypical than ever! The wait was so worth it! I truly recommend this to everybody, from beginners to die-hard Santa Fe railfans. You can either use the set as an expansion for another layout or you can set it up under the Christmas tree. I understand there are some people who know that during its corporate existence the Santa Fe never assigned red "warbonnets" to freight service until the 90's, and F7's ran for the company until around the mid-70's, so you may use this set however you like. Add some straight tracks, some turn outs, bumpers, another locomotive (Bachmann's Santa Fe GP40 recommended), a couple more freight cars (such as Bachmann's Santa Fe 50 Ft. mechanical reefer) and passenger cars for the F7, as well as buildings and scenery so you can create your own little Santa Fe railroad.
