At a time when US locomotive builders were vying for more horsepower, this loco was seen as the answer to competitors’ more powerful diesel locomotives. General Motors’ EMD GP30 was considered one of the first so-called ‘second generation’ diesel locomotives produced by the company. General Electric had already stolen the march on 2,500hp locomotives with its U25B, and although the GP20 was only rated at 2,250hp, EMD traded on its reputation to sell units to US railroads.
In total, 948 models were built between July 1961 and November 1963 for railroads in the US and Canada, including 40 cabless B units for the Union Pacific Railroad. Some elements of the earlier GP20 were carried across, although the GP30’s trademark ‘hump’ and cab roof profile made it stand out from other similar diesel locomotives.
A number of GP30s remain in service today in their original or rebuilt form, with 17 models currently preserved, some still in operational condition. Add the Chessie Systems livery to your collection today to experience the diversity of this incredible loco!

在美国机车制造商们争相争取更多马力的时候，这个loco被视为竞争对手更强大的柴油机车的答案。通用汽车公司的EMD GP30被认为是该公司生产的首批所谓的 “第二代” 柴油机车之一。通用电气 (General Electric) 已经在2,500hp的机车上窃取了游行，尽管GP20仅被评为2,250hp，但EMD以其声誉进行了交易，将单位出售给美国铁路。
在1961年7月至1963年11月期间，总共为美国和加拿大的铁路建造了948个型号，其中包括40个用于联合太平洋铁路的无机用B单元。尽管GP30的商标 “驼峰” 和驾驶室车顶轮廓使其从其他类似的内燃机车中脱颖而出，但早期GP20的一些元素被携带。
今天，许多GP30仍以原始或重建的形式服役，目前保存了17个型号，有些仍处于运行状态。今天将Chessie Systems livery添加到您的收藏中，体验这个令人难以置信的loco的多样性!
