Description
Features and Information

  • Introduced: 1954
  • Production ends: 1968
  • Top Speed: 105
  • Tractive Effort: 288.0 kN

The Pennsylvania Railroad's GP9s were built around 1954-1955 through the 1960s. #7042 lasted through the 1960s and 1970s, even after changing hands into the newly-formed Penn Central scheme. Penn Central declared bankruptcy in 1970, and several years later the U.S. Government created Consolidated Rail (Conrail) to handle freight customers along the massive abandoned Penn Central System. Conrail repainted #7042 into its own scheme before repainting it back into its original PRR scheme and putting it on permanent display at Horseshoe Curve, an infamous railway landmark near Altoona, PA where it resides today.

The base game's GP9 runs long hood forward, despite most railways' GP9s being run cab forward. Luckily, the Pennsylvania Railroad's GP9s were run long hood forward.

@YouBlewIt - Please disregard my prior request for "Penn Central EMD GP9". I've been doing some repaints lately and will likely get to this eventually.

@sergeant_Oddball - Regarding your request for "Geep into both Soo line schemes", I have already done Soo Line maroon (but haven't uploaded yet) and am working on Soo Line in white and red. I hope to upload both to workshop soon.

Could you do a verison of this with Trainphone antennas?

May I request getting the SD40 in Wisconsin Central, as well as the Geep into both Soo line schemes? (the maroon and gold, and the white and red one)

SOO Line equipment also on the way. Adding the P42DC in Amtrak Phase III to my to-do list:steamhappy:

May I request reskinning the SD40 into SOO Line colors (specifically the white/red/black 'Hockey Stick' scheme. If not that, then may I also request a reskin of the P42DC into Amtrak's Phase III scheme
