GN F7A ‘Big Sky Blue’-stealth-DEPOSIT ONLY

Out of stock



Any available stock may be announced when product arrives.


Broadway Limited will be producing these exclusively for Lowell Smith Signature Series for use in RailSmith production of the 1967 Great Northern trains.  The colors will match our RailSmith colors for this train, so these will go perfect with your train set. 

In 1967 the GN adopted the new color scheme of Big Sky Blue. But when they did this, not all power units were given this new decoration. The Great Northern Historical Society as well as several books document the exact engines given this blue, white and gray paint, so we are confident of our road number choices.

One interesting note about the passenger F units. (The GN referred to them as ‘P3’ or ‘P7’s). It was not often that a complete set (A-B-A) of  F units in Big Sky Blue  was assigned to any of the GN passenger trains. Of course you can do what you want, including buy two A units, but here is our plan: we intend to produce a single A and a single B unit in the F7 style (GN=P7’s) at this time. Then in the following production of F units, we will commission BLI to produce a F3  (P3) single A & B units.

If you will look at the many photos if the BSB P units, you find a mix of P3 and P7’s. And in many cases just a single B unit in so many lash ups! Check out the photos we have included here. As you will see, these are great companions to the GN’s ‘Simplified’ engines we released last.

 In this selection,   SINGLE F7A road number 369C, will come in the BLI ‘Stealth’ version which allows you to add your own decoder or run in Analog ‘DC’ mode. This is a deposit only with the balance due payable before delivery, which is expected to be Q4 2024.  Total cost should be close to $214.

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!


I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

Lowell, I am very pleased with the N Scale Ferdinand Magellan Presidential car. As a retired US Secret Service agent I have conducted security advances for the president and his family traveling by train. I have done a lot of research on the Ferdinand Magellan and the model has excellent detail. It will be an…

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…
