Modeling choices at the moment are:

  • For N Scale:
    • Arnold once made a GP7/9
    • Atlas have released a GP9 that could be backdated.
    • LifeLike made a GP18 that could be backdated.
  • For HO Scale:
    • Athearn unit has a GP7 and a 'fatso', ( but if your not fussy, it's a proven unit), that could be modified.
    • Front Range GP9's (that need backdating) are still available from various suppliers. Trains Unlimited with Athearn compatible chassis, and Proto-Power West are two that I know of.
    • A LifeLike GP18 could be backdated to a GP7 - some parts from Detail Assoc. are available.
    • LifeLike has released a GP9, that could be backdated.
    • Atlas Classic GP7.
  • In S Scale:
    • American Flyer
    • American Models perhaps a GP9
  • In O Scale:
    • Red Caboose made a GP9, and available in Black Widow, that could be backdated.
    • Lionel also made a GP7.
