Roster shot of my Conrail GP30 2235

The GP30s had an interesting career with Conrail.Some of the oldest second generation power on the road, they survived through the early 1990s, being put into, and taken out of storage as traffic dictated. My model reflects one of these engines in the middle of its Conrail career.

2235 is an old Atlas model manufactured by Kato. It was my first recent CR model and was a gift from my friend Sean. I worked on it to make it accurately reflect the prototype. Modifications included changing the pilots, adding the standard cab signal box and radio antenna and also forming a coupler lift bar. 2235 is in overall good shape, but has also had an oil leak, as shown by the streaks running down from the doors.
