The Prototype

The C30-7 was a follow up to GE's successful U30C locomotive design. Built between 1976 and 1986, the C30-7's production numbers were nearly double that of the U30C, with the locomotive seeing use on numerous railroads both in North America and Europe. With design changes including larger, more prominent radiators and a "step"-like structure to the fore of the radiators which gave the long hood a subtly different shape to its predecessor.

The C30-7 --

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The GE C30-7 is a 6-axle diesel locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems between 1976 and 1986 as an updated U30C. It is powered by a 16-cylinder, 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW) FDL-series diesel engine. 1,137 examples of this locomotive were built for North American railroads.

Barry Byington's excellent photo of ATSF 8027 was taken in April 1987 shortly after it was repainted. His photo is posted on LocoPhotos.com a wonderful location to find roster shots and research locomotives. Permission to use his photo has been requested.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
