ElectroMotive Inc., an established company known for its high-quality production of diesel-electric locomotives for the rail industry, is applauded for its creation of the GP30 and the GP9. The GP30, which was among the first of the second-generation diesel locomotive designs, was introduced in 1961 to compete against General Electric’s “U-Boat” locomotives. The GP9, a classic road-switcher, first saw service in the mid-1950s, and it became the most-produced EMD model in history. In honor of these highly celebrated locomo-

tives, featured below you’ll find an assortment of fun collectibles. Browse through the rest of the catalog to find stylish railroad shirts on page 27, classic die cast cars on pages 40-41, and genuine stock certificates on pages 25 and 52.
