Maybe some of our railheads here will enjoy these shots of a true classic locomotive, the EMD (GM) GP30. This loco was built in the early 1960s. It's turbocharged 2250 HP prime mover and generator powered four traction motors. The 30 had a classic long hood and cab shape that made it popular with a whole generation of railfans. My favorite railroad, the Denver and Rio Grande Western, used the GP30 as a mainstay of it's motive power fleet for almost 40 years.

The bottom 2 shots really stand out! What type of lighting did you use for the cab shots? They came out great. Oh, did you use HDR on the 2nd shot to get it to look like that?

Those are nice shots. The Alaska Railroad had 1 GP30. No one wanted to buy it, so they gave it to a scrapper. Here's what they did to it.

It is not my photo. Just found it on the net.
