Engine Road number maybe different then the picture number. Please read Title for engine road number. Thank you Trains on Tracks
Introduced by GE as a competitor to the EMD SD40 and SD40-2, the U23C and U30C locomotive chassis’ were one of GE’s earliest locomotive successes. Nicknamed “U-Boats”, these units were used in multiple services, pulling coal trains, general freight, and even as a test-power unit for the Department of Transportation’s subway car experiments in Colorado.
Last produced in 1991, the GE U30C from Kato is being reworked to modern specification, with a redesigned DCC friendly mechanism and a new detailed underframe which allows the locomotive to be fitted with body mounted, fully automatic magnetic knuckle couplers.
