AT&SF C30-7 8076
Title:  AT&SF C30-7 8076
Description:  AT&SF C36-7 8076 at Alliance, Nebraska on September 5, 1982, Kodachrome by Jim Altman, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 8076 was built in May 1979 ( c/n 42387 ) and was repainted in SPSF paint sometime between June 1985-86. Eventually it became CRL 548 and later UP 573. The following is from utahrails.net: Thirty-two of the above units, except UP 587, 593, 594, and 599, were built as ATSF 8000 series units; leased by ATSF to GE in December 1989 and loaned by GE to UP to make up for slow deliveries of new C40-8s; retired by Santa Fe in January and June 1994 and traded to GE; leased by GE to Conrail as CR 500 series units; used in national lease fleet with CRL (Conrail Leasing) reporting marks; all had either 500 or 0500 series numbers. Original total of 36 units, numbered UP 564-599 (UP 590 and 599 were not delivered); rebuilt from C30-7s to C36Ms by Metro-East Industries, East St. Louis, Illinois, and by VMV Enterprises, Paducah, Kentucky. Assigned UP 63-95 and 97-99 in December 1999 (leaving UP 96 number slot for use by the Heritage Fleet SW10); no units were renumbered prior to being returned to Helm Financial in late March 2000.

AT&SF C30-7 8047
Title:  AT&SF C30-7 8047
Description:  AT&SF C36-7 8047 after a storm at Corwith Yard in Chicago, Illinois on May 31, 1987, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 8047 was built in June 1978 ( c/n 41714 ) and was retired in November 1992 and traded to GE ( along with 56 other C30-7's ) on an order of B40-7W's. The plan was for GE to rebuild the locomotive and lease it ( some were later sold to Conrail ), but that didn't happen and 8047 was scrapped by Cycle Systems in June 1997.
