#5256 Open steps and open platform, A/C, forward beacon & horn

In the early 1980’s when Amtrak was in the process of the final purge of their SDP40F fleet they struck a deal with Santa Fe in which they traded 18
of the SDP40F’s (with which the Santa Fe had not had any derailment issues) for 25 Santa Fe CF7’s and 18 of their rebuilt switchers. Initially Santa
Fe reconditioned them with few external modifications but later modified the front steps and nose to ease the ability for crews to get on and off of the
locomotives while changing crews.
In this release we are offering the two earliest versions of these units. Initially Santa Fe simply added front handrails and vertical steps to the front of
the locomotive. This arrangement proved to be problematical when trying to perform rolling crew changes, so they then closed off the front steps and
platform to prevent crews from using them for safety reasons.
