S.P. #1518 EMD-SD-7

Southern Pacific #1518 the first built EMD SD-7 at IRM in Union Ill. on a spur track still in operational condition.
I remember these units when I started to collect rosters and SP was my first. Here in Canada we had a lot of GP9's and did have a few GP7"s but not to my knowledge we had SD7's.?
chaloner, Canada was rather late to fully dieselize so I think your right about us not having SD7s. We really didn't start to experiment with 6 axles until the MLW units and the SD40s.
