One of my personal favorite models of engines of all time! EMD (Electro-Motive Division, at that time) had a very unique look to it. It was, in my opinion, a very classy look. Nice to know that a couple Rio Grande GP30s will be preserved. DRGW 3011 is at the Colorado Railroad Museum, awaiting funds for restoration. DRGW 3006 is owned by a private individual who, as far as I know, also intends to restore the classic unit, which will soon celebrate 55th birthday.
