Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The GE P30CH was one of the first brand-new Diesel-electric locomotives built for Amtrak in the company's early years. The design was based on the GE U30C, but had a cowl carbody like its EMD competitors. 25 P30CHs were ordered by Amtrak in 1974, just after Amtrak ordered 40 EMD SDP40Fs in 1973. Unlike the SDP40F, the P30CH was the first Amtrak locomotive built from the factory to offer HEP. The six axle P30CHs, which cost Amtrak $480,000 each, were plagued with mechanical problems and were never very popular with crews or Amtrak management.
