    I have been looking through my Frisco diesels book and I am thinking that the U28B might be "close enough" for a FRISCO U30B.

    Any thoughts??|-| :D

    Frisco U30B 846 was one of at least two GE U-boats delivered with lettering for the "Xtra Reliable Series", which was marketed from mid-1972 as a response to EMD's "Dash-2" line. 846 was billed as GE's 2500th domestic U-boat as well. L&N U30C 1499 received similar lettering as well as a special paint scheme to introduce the line in August 1972. 846 is shown at Lindenwood on 28 Nov 74.

    U30B 858

    Here is a photo showing the rear of Frisco 858 pooled on the UP in Seattle, WA 3-31-78.

    It was an all U30 lashup. A UP U30C and 2 SLSF U30B's.
    I have to say the rear of the U30B looks pretty blank without numberboards!

    Wonder how they were identified at night when meeting other trains if one led running rear end first?

    When I see a photo like this I realize my models could stand some more weathering.

    U30B 838

    Here is a photo from my collection of SLSF 838 pooled on the UP in Seattle 3-20-79. Always thought something about it looked odd. At the time I wasn't aware that some of the Frisco U30B's did not have lights on the nose. This was one of them.

    HWB: Another excuse for more U-boat weathering.....

    Boy, weren't those things "beautifully-ugly" (Or "ugly-beautiful") brutes! Those things and the F-M switchers were about the only Frisco things I cared about in the Mandarin and White era.
