The ex-CN unit even got the ATSF's distinctive, homemade, nose door headlight, with its larger diameter than the EMD standard. Most, and perhaps all, Santa Fe EMD E's and F's left LaGrange with no nose door light, with that feature being added by the railroad's own shops. By any chance, was this conversion one by Santa Fe people?

The nose on the door was added during the restoration by the museum, as it was never a true Santa Fe unit. The museum's website features a great page about F7 project, I've included the link below. Thanks for your comment!

For not being an original Santa Fe F-7, this museum did a far better job of making it authentic Santa Fe than that other Life-Size Toy Train looking Santa Fe F-Unit down there in Galveston.
