The GP30 was a 2,250 horsepower four-axle diesel locomotive, built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division (EMD) between 1961 and 1963. A few are still in use today. The GP30 is easily recognizable due to its high profile and stepped cab roof, unique among American locomotives. Bachmannís HO Scale GP30 is available in Nickel Plateís paint scheme.
