The EMD GP30 is a 2,250 hp (1,680 kW) four-axle road switcher diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division of La Grange, Illinois between July 1961 and November 1963. A total of 948 units were built for railroads in the United States and Canada (2 only), including 40 cabless B units for the Union Pacific Railroad.[2]

It was the first so-called “second generation” EMD diesel locomotive, and was produced in response to increased competition by a new entrant, General Electric’s U25B, which was released roughly at the same time as the GP30. The GP30 is easily recognizable due to its high profile and stepped cab roof, unique among American locomotives.[2] A number are still in service today in original or rebuilt form.

We have modeled it here for you to add to your collection. We have faithfully captured the iconic hump and the rounded top of the cab.

The Powered Up system is used in the instructions but the cab has space for an S Brick or a PFx brick.
