Athearn RTR 1100 HO Scale GP60 Diesel Union Pacific UP 5869 DC

When the GP59’s and GP60’s were first introduced, three demonstrator versions of each type were tested and evaluated all around the USA by many railroads. The GP60 model proved to be popular with Western- based carriers initially, and was utilized on SP and ATSF high-speed intermodal service. NS acquired both GP59 and GP60 models.

After the mega-mergers in the 1990s, the GP60s found themselves in new paint schemes and in service for new railroads such as UP and BNSF. CSX began to acquire GP60s second hand after 2010. Being assigned to locals and yard jobs, these distinctive locomotives are still in service today.
