No, Southern Pacific did not have any.
They were originally "kitbashed' by Santa Fe from their older F7 units.
Many of them would up on shortlines when AT&SF sold them off.
I forget the name/author of the book, but there IS a book (profusely illustrated) on the building and history of the CF7's and it shows a lot of the subsequent owners. It is a fairly recent book, my local model rail shop has one on the shelves.

The first CF7 I saw was back in 1991 when Amtrak acquired one (or some). It was at Ivy City (Washington, DC) still painted in SF colors. Later, I saw it in Amtrak Platinum Mist. An impressive locomotive!
