The General Electric U28C locomotive, developed in 1966, provided a 300 horsepower increase over its predecessor, the U25C. Built on a larger frame than the U25C, the model also incorporated other improvements, such as new floating bolster trucks. A passenger-hauling variant, the U28CG, was produced for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. These units were painted in the timeless red and silver Warbonnet paint scheme and put into service on the Texas Chief, replacing well aged F units. Upon being retired from passenger service the U28CGs were repainted into the standard Santa Fe freight colors of blue and yellow.
Early U30Cs were based on the U28C design and were visually identical to the Phase II U28C, of which this new model from Atlas represents.
Southern Pacific model features SP style lighting including nose mounted headlight, cab mounted Gyralight, and roof mounted Emergency light.
