The EMD GP7 is a four-axle (B-B) road switcher diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division and General Motors Diesel between October, 1949 and May 1954.
Power was provided by an EMD 567B 16-cylinder engine which generated 1,500 horsepower (1,119 kW).
The GP7 was offered both with and without control cabs, and those built without control cabs were called a GP7B.
Five GP7B’s were built between March and April 1953. The GP7 was the first EMD road locomotive to use a hood unit design instead of a car-body design. This proved to be more efficient than the cab unit design as the hood unit cost less, had easier and cheaper maintenance, and had much better front and rear visibility for switching.
