In November 1959, EMD introduced the first of its
second-generation diesels, the turbocharged GP20.  The GP20 is
a four-axle road switcher with a turbocharged 567D2 engine, capable of
producing 2000 horsepower.  Two prominent features of the
original GP20’s are dynamic brakes and a low, short hood that tapers
away from the front of the cab.  Between November of 1959 and
April 1962, EMD produced 260 of these locomotives, which were
originally sold to eight US railroads.   GP20’s made
their way to many railroads, and several are still operating today on
short lines in the US. 

In our first production, Broadway Limited Imports
is offering models in eight prototypical paint schemes and also one
Unpainted version.
