An E would be a longer carbody ro accommodate two prime movers. The SDF-7
would have only one, and a much shorter frame.

And a shorter fuel tank.
It would have looked remarkably like the F-units built for Australia on 6-wheeled trucks.

I'll have to look around for this project. Basically, it had an F-unit shell with 36" DB fans in front of and behind the four radiator fans. The overall length was a little longer than an FL-9.

I have some double-ended units built from F-7 shells on stretched SD-7 running gear. They are the same length as an E unit by default of having two cabs and room for two steam gennys in the B end.
BTW, there is a prototype for the machines, quite a few of them in fact.
