Classic Streamliners - TRAINCYCLOPEDIA
EMD E7 Diesel-Electric Locomotive
In profile the front of the nose of an E7A was less slanted than on earlier EMD passenger locomotives, and the E7, E8, and E9 units have been nicknamed “bulldog nose” units. Some earlier units were called “shovel nose” units or “slant nose” units.
A Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad E7A, No. 103-A, appears at the start and end of the 1967 film In The Heat Of The Night.
A Southern Pacific E7A, No. 6001, is on the point of a train that figures prominently in The Hitch-Hiker, a popular 1960 episode of the anthology television series, The Twilight Zone, starring Inger Stevens. (According to the narration, Steven's character is said to encounter the train somewhere between Pennsylvania and Tennessee, yet the locomotive's number board shows that the train, No. 99, is the Coast Daylight, which travelled between Los Angeles and San Francisco.)
The only E7 that survives today is owned by the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, in Strasburg, Pennsylvania and is ex-Pennsylvania Railroad E7A No. 5901. This locomotive has been cosmetically restored, and is on indoor display.
