    Here are some shots of my two new Atlas GP30's after programing the DCC Equipped loco's.
    First impression is they are a little light , and run very slow (as delivered) and look great. I have yet to pull a train but I will be using them double headed all the time anyway and I like slow!
    I like them!

    Ralph's for fun!

    Worth the wait! I've always liked the distinctive look of the GP30. Time to assign them to a train Mike! :)

    Very handsome pair of "Bulls" as they were once called when new.Why Bull? Its because of the "hump" from the cab to the DBs.

    I've always...

    ...been partial to GP-30s. I got mine a few days ago too! YEAAAAY!

    I hope I can take a few minutes and just post a pic. Of course mine are


    Reading's the railroad for me. I started reading (as in reading, not READING-:p) about the GP-30 after I read your post. As always Mike- great inspiration.

    Those look great. I've always liked that distinctive GP30 look. (Just wish Atlas would make a high hood Southern GP30. Oh well.)

    They look great, fifer. My gP30 runs great as well.
