News for August 1998

(updated 5 August 1998)

Here is the data I have on the new 2562-2588 group of GP38-2s, to be delivered beginning this month. These will be rebuilt by MPI from GP40s, mostly from the 850-887 series leased from Helm in 1989. MPI will call these units GP38M-2s, UP will call them simply GP38-2s. These units would likely have been GP38-3s (in fact 2551 and 2562 are) had not the Woodward CLC control system not gone out of production. Note that UP 2580 was completed on 30 June 1998, but has not yet been delivered to UP.
