    I purchased an Atlas F-7 locomotive on Ebay, it is decorated in the Northern Pacific's Butter Knife paint scheme. I'm wondering if someone would have literature for this model. I don't know how old it is; but, it came with Horn Hook Couplers.

    Thanks for any help I can get!!

    I didn’t know Atlas ever produced an F7 (or F3). Not even Spookshow shows one.

    Actually, it was labeled an F9 and Roco made it. Not going to get into the accuracy/labelling that went on in those days. I had one at one time.
    I'll look around and see if I still have the docs - I scanned and sent them to somebody on another board a few years ago.
    My illness, as it gets worse has forced me out of N scale and is now making me move to a smaller one story house. A lot of my stuff is either gone - donated to the local club, sold or packed. I'll see what I can find.

    Actually, it is an HO FP-7, a passenger locomotive. I now have an exploded view of the locomotive; but, would like any other literature on the locomotive that might have been provided to a purchaser of this particular Atlas locomotive.

    OK, You're talking about an HO model. Still originally made for them by Roco. You can try HOSeeker for docs.
    The mention of Spookshow made me think you were talking about N.
    Carry on.

    Carolina Northern, Your right, I should not have asked without being more specific. Although HO scale is more popular than N scale, being specific goes along way towards getting good information.
