  • Rock Island GP38-2 Reprise

    Finally found a copy of the January/February 2003 issue of "Diesel Era", with a feature on Rock Island GP38-2's, the bankruptcy blue orders from Sep-1976 through Dec-1978.

    Pics include units 4300, 4301, 4302, 4305, 4306, 4307, 4309, 4310, 4313, 4315, 4317, 4320, 4321, 4323, 4329, 4331, 4333, 4334, 4336, 4341, 4351, 4354, 4371, 4374, and 4379.

    In addition, a review of some of them as they were after the Rock bit the big one, including 4329 with only "THE ROCK" painted out being used by MOPAC. MOPAC alctually bought a significant number of the units, so there's also other pics of 'em in MOPAC trim. Very kewl.
