In 1976, GE C30-7 was introduced as the successor to the U36C locomotive and contained several internal and external design changes resulting in 16 cylinders and 3000 h.p. Early C30's featured a blanked nose headlight receptacle, with the headlight relocated above the window area. The last order of 14 units of the 157 ordered between 1977 and 1982 had white number boards and a smooth nose. 8077 is mildly weathered with all the appropriate roof add-ons.
Unit 5656 was built in May 1972 and delivered in the Yellow Stripe paint scheme. All 90 purchased were eventually repainted into the Yellow Warbonnet scheme, and equipped with air conditioning, high mounted air horns, window shades, and radio antennae. 5656 was mildly weathered, with rust showing around the air filter. You can faintly see where the yellow paint in that air filter has just about weathered away.
