N GE C30-7

Prototype Information:

The C30-7 was a follow up to GE’s successful U30C locomotive design. Built between 1976 and 1986, the C30-7’s production numbers were nearly double that of the U30C, with the locomotive seeing use on numerous railroads both in North America and Europe. With design changes including larger, more prominent radiators and a “step”-like structure to the fore of the radiators which gave the long hood a subtly different shape to its predecessor.


Model Information:

Last produced in 1994, the GE C30-7 from Kato has been reworked to modern specification, with a redesigned DCC friendly mechanism that is shared with its predecessor, the GE U30C.

Model Features:

  • Locomotives feature directional LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards
  • Powerful Kato mechanism powered by a 5-pole flywheel motor and featuring a 9 3/4″ minimum turning radius – great for hauling sets such as the Kato N Mixed Freight Train Set.
  • Body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.
