The EMD GP35 is a 4-axle diesel locomotive, manufactured between 1963 and 1965. More than 1200 locomotives werebuilt for US, Canadian and Mexican railroads in those brief years, as many railroads were upgrading from older EMD Funits or Alco locomotives. Originally designed for General Purpose (hence, GP) mainline duties, over the long lifespanof these locomotives they saw service in everything from mainline operation to switching and branchline service.There were numerous phase variations of the GP35, each with minor spotting differences such as number and locationsof hood latches and louvers, as well as differences between fuel trank frames.
