I have my doubts as this ever being an F-unit as it looks to be some sort of an ALCO child.

CF7's were rebuilt out of F7's, and I think some F3's or 9's

That would explain the trucks. My mistake. They have quiet the fleet of locos. I looked them up after I came across your picture.

another way to tell if something was a ex f unit is on the frame above the coupler. it is rounded instead of being flat like the rest of the front.

The cab on that loco is terrible!! I was just looking at the pic again and I see what looks to be a home made cab, an old Geep short hood which appears to be a 35, maybe a 38, and what looks to be an ALCO long hood. Awesome find and I truly dig your collection of photos! You have a very diverse collection of road names and units.
