Santa Fe Super Chief custom B-unit
Side shot - shows what it looks like, really.
About this creation
I wanted to build a B-unit to go with my Santa Fe Super Chief consist (the usual suspects of loco and 5 cars - dome car to follow). I've seen a few done with the red base, yellow stripe and the rest grey - which mine was until just before the roof went on. Because I was using a Super Chief set for the basis of the B-unit, I decided I couldn't resist re-creating the Warbonnet paint scheme again for something different. (and all those red bits look so bright and shiny fresh out of the pack!)

The big tree in the background was made by my clever wife (the self-proclaimed 'Landscape Queen') who it turns out stole 2 red poles from the Super Chief set to support the trunk internally. A good idea, and it explains why the B-unit is missing the front hand-rails in the overhead photo...








(Reviews from sarcastic 'secret' wives don't count!)

Those hand-rails WILL be duly returned to me...

The Warbonnet colour scheme also allowed me to use the red port-hole windows that come with the Super Chief set







don't see that tree no more... ;)-~

I think you need to turn it around when connectinf it to the A-Unit so it continues the effect http://www.zuckerfabrik24.de/eisenbahn/pic3/F7_4sf.jpg

Need to turn it around to continue the effect... and maybe make a couple more ;) http://www.zuckerfabrik24.de/eisenbahn/pic3/F7_4sf.jpg

It's ok, but the real Santa Fe F7 and F3 B-Units do not have a warbonnet paint scheme, they only are grey with a red and yellow stripe on the bottom of the unit. Go to the Fallen Flags website for pictures of the real B-Units.

My Super-Cheif train won't carry five cars without an extra engine. I might need one of these with a motor to alleviate that problem.
