PROTO 2000 Diesel U30B Phase I - Powered
Atlantic Coast Line #978
The GE U30B was the successor to the 2,800-horsepower U28B introduced in early 1966. Much like the U28B, the versatile U30B was designed to be equally at home on fast freights or heavy drags. Designers coaxed 3,000 horsepower from the same 16-cylinder engine used in the U28B, making it a direct competitor with EMD's GP40. Almost 300 U30Bs were produced for the U.S. market including units delivered with high noses to N&W and SOU. Many units remained in service into the 80s and 90s, and by 2006 only a handful worked for shortline and regional roads.
These new Walthers PROTO 2000 models are accurate replicas of Phase I units and feature the proper radiator arrangement under the rear intake grilles. Each features a five-pole, skew-wound motor with dual flywheels, heavy diecast chassis and applied detail parts.
These units feature an 8-pin DCC plug socket so you can add the decoder of your choice.
