Great Northern GP30 with dynamic brake
[22904]
$290.00
by Harvey Henkelmann Date Added: Tuesday 16 April, 2013
The newest offering by Bachmann in their Williams brand of O gauge three-rail electric trains is a model of the popular EMD GP30 diesel locomotive.

The prototype heralded the second generation of diesel locomotives in North America, with 948 being built by General Motors between 1961 and 1963. Despite the GP30 being rated at just 2,250 horsepower compared with competitor General Electric's model U25B (2,500 horsepower), the EMD entry won out due to customers familiarity with EMD equipment and the relative simplicity of two-cycle diesel engines.

WbB (williams by Bachmann) have produced an excellent representation of the GP30 for the O gauge electric train market. The model is well-detailed, solidly built and has rugged mechanics, especially when compared with their contemporaries such as Lionel. Also new for Williams is their new sound system which features horn, bell, and diesel engine. While the diesel engine sound effect is present, it doesn't overwhelm the listener like Lionel or MTH can.

As of this review, the GP30 is offered in four roadnames including Union Pacific, New York Central, Atlantic Coast Line, and Great Northern.

If you are looking for a reliable, conventionally-powered diesel locomotive in O gauge, then the Williams GP30 may be for you.
