Athearn Genesis EMD F7 PRR Class EF15a
Athearn Genesis has announced a run of their EMD F7 diesel locomotives in Pennsy livery.

Offered are two sets (9764A & 9764B or 9820A & 9821A) or a single A unit (9765) in either standard DC or DCC with Tsunami sound. The road numbers show on the roster as being Phase Ic units. Athearn cites the models as depicting the units from delivery in 1951 through 1966.

Athearn Genesis ran F7 Phase 1a (early) units late in the 1990's. They have since been run by InterMountain (no train phone), Broadway Limited Imports, and Life Like Proto. Athearn Genesis recently ran FP7's that were received very well.

MSRP's of the DC and DCC units are, respectively, $169.98 and $269.98 for singles and $309.98 and $489.98 for two unit sets. Orders are due by July 20, 2012, for delivery in February 2013.
