EMD GP-9R/10

EMD GP-9R & GP-10

The GP-9R and GP-10 are essentially the same locomotive, less several smaller differences. The primary difference is in who performed the rebuild process. At the end of the day, they are the same HP and perform the same.

If you need a bare-bones locomotive capable of performing in high capacity in low speed operations, this locomotive is the ticket! No fancy electronics, easy to work on, easy to maintain and extremely durable. As proven in shear numbers still in service and parts available.
