On their FaceBook page, Athearn has posted several photos of their forthcoming EMD GP7. The initial release in PRR correctly represent four units without dynamic brakes or trainphone.

Comments have been posted around the net about the paint being too "green". Athearn writes: “The PRR DGLE color is the same as on the Fs. It just looks brighter in the full sun we photographed the models under. Plus, in Photoshop, we lightened it a bit to show details better.”
