Prototype & Background Info:

The EMD GP series locomotives became some of the most successful designs of the age. Produced from 1970s to mid 1980s the GP38-2 and GP50 were quickly found in many different tasks of the railroad. From switching to pulling high priority freight trains across country, these versatile locomotives brought the goods to North America. Many of these locomotives are now being rebuilt with ecologically sound emission control for higher population centers. A new era emerges as technology meets proven reliability for these EMD products.

Athearn brings these representative locomotives alongside regular freight trains that were commonplace. Sharing the new golden age of railroading!
