Locomotive Information:

701 - 706, the original order of six units, were delivered with the late U28C body style - the remainder were delivered as "Phase II" locos. with extended radiator and angled fairing from the body to the front of the radiator. 703 was named Walter E. Zeh.

Most if no all of the U30C's were retrofitted with Gyralites by the D&H. The electrical prints for the U30C's were modified with the Gyralite in 1971 and the modifications were carried out on through late 1974, early 1975. Since the U30C's were ready for major over hauls during this period, they received the lights.

All went to NdeM in 1978.
