I photographed an F7 in Roanoke in 1972; the image appeared in an NWHS calendar. Someone might erroniously infer that some of them operated in the east. But the truth is the unit had returned from a lease to the CNJ and was actually off the roster at the time I shot it. I spent a lot of time on the N&W in the '60s and '70s and never saw an F7 in operation, nor did any of my friends doing the same thing. Nor have I ever seen a photograph of one on the 'old' N&W. The only first generation road units I ever saw were GP9/18s and RS11s.

But as Ed says, as soon as one stakes out firm ground, something surfaces to shake the ground.
