Product Information

Make one of EMD's most popular roadswitcher models part of your diesel fleet in minutes with the WalthersProto(R) GP35!
Making its debut in 1963, the new engine would pave the way for future generations of hood units. Offering 2500 horsepower and a number of innovative new features, many were purchased as replacements for elderly diesels, and since EMD took trade-ins, some were constructed with rebuilt parts, notably trucks, from other builders! Along with these variations, modelers and railfans noted other changes made during the production run, and began referring to early examples as Phase I (also known as Phase 1) while those built after mid-1965 became Phase II (also known as Phase 2); EMD however considered them all the same model and never used these designations. By the time production ended in 1966, over 1300 were in service, and many are still running on shortlines and at museums today.
