UPs Phase III GP9s began service on the UP in 1957 lasting into the 1970s. While the majority of these 300 class units were modified significantly there were 5 that survived in their as-built configuration all the way up until retirement. We are offering 3 of them in this production run. Note that they could be seen in service with the UPs Veranda style Turbines.

UPs fleet of 75 Phase I GP9B units were built in in the Spring of 1954 and remained in service until the mid-1970s. These ubiquitous units could be seen in service system wide on mainline freights as well as branch line locals. They could also be seen with in service assisting Veranda Turbines.
