Title: GP30 needs more recent schemes
Post by: NSthoroughbred on June 22, 2016, 03:53:27 AM
I am eager to buy one of the GP30's but will only buy more recent (modern) era paint schemes.  I would suggest Santa Fe, Conrail, CSX (both recent schemes).  Additionally a Penn Central with red & white "worm" logo.  Although Norfolk Southern would be a fictional scheme on a GP30,  many of us would enjoy this road as well.

I agree that there is a limited paint scheme or roadnames in the GP-30's. How about some railroads from Pennsylvania? Names like; Reading Lines, Reading & Northern, Pennsylvania.

Reading would look great for sure.

I tried to upload a pic I took of a CSX GP30 at Fostoria,  OH in 2013 but the pic is too big.  The unit was rebuilt by CSX and looked brand new in the latest CSX colors with white cab roof.

Bachmann...any possibility of more recent road names for the GP30?
