my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
3001 - 3028
28 units delivered
DRGW bought two orders of GP30's #3001-3013 in 1962, and #3014-3028 in 1963.
Originally delivered in small Rio Grande lettering, some later received the larger 'billboard' lettering.
After being bumped from mainline service, they were used for locals, yard and transfer service.
Only one unit was wrecked, #3025 in 1982, this was replaced with a GP40 in 1983.
#3021-3028 were downgraded to B unit status by 1990. B units do not require working radio's, toilets etc. maintenance cost-cutting...
These units were never rebuilt, so operated in their original configuration until the end of their individual life...
