The EMD GP50 is a four axle diesel electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro Motive Division between 1980 and 1985.
This is powered by a 16 cylinder EMD 645F3B diesel engine, which can produce between 3,500 and 3,600 horsepower.
Our test samples came equipped with feature-laden SoundTraxx Digital Command Control decoders. The GP50 rides on the same frame as the EMD GP38, GP38-2, GP39, GP39-2, GP40, and GP40-2.The first GP50s were fifty units built for Chicago and North Western starting in May 1980.
Seventy units for Southern, ten units for Missouri Pacific and ten units for Burlington Northern completed the first years' production.


Twenty more GP50s for Southern, an additional twenty for Missouri Pacific and thirty for Santa Fe were built in 1981. These were Phase II versions with straight-sill frame and free-flow or "laundry chute" traction motor blower bulge. They were the last GP50s built, bringing the production total to 278 units.Until the early 1990s, the GP50s on all five railroads could be found on almost any kind of mainline train and were mixed with that road's other power. Santa Fe and Southern also had GP50s equipped as masters for remote-control operations (distributed power in today's terms). Santa Fe used theirs on coal trains out of New Mexico, while Southern used theirs on manifest trains on the CNO&TP between Cincinnati, Ohio and Chattanooga, Tennessee.


In later years the GP50s migrated to general service including locals often assigned in three or four unit sets to hotshot piggyback trains.
