Talk about a blast from the past! This was one of the last Rio Grande GP30's to be retired off the roster. This unit almost saw action in the 21st century, being retired on July 23, 1998. It has been sitting here in Burnham ever since, waiting for its new (private) owner to find a permanent home for it. The unit survived for nearly 37 years, seeing its first action in April of 1962.
