Prototype Information —

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 testpower unit for the Department of Transportation’s subway car experiments in Colorado. One BN unit was repainted for the 1776 US Bicentennial Celebration, which is also being offered by Kato USA in this special re-production run of U30C Locomotives.
