Of the three C-truck General Electric U-boats to arrive from Athearn in the '70s, the U30-C enjoyed
the widest adoption among prototype railroads and had the highest production numbers. Built between 1966 and 1976, GE made
600 examples of the U30-C and they went to the following railroads: ACL, BN, C&S-CB&Q, C&O, C&NW, D&H, Detroit Edison, Ferrocarril
del Pacifico, Kaiser Steel, L&N, Milwaukee, Mopac, N&W, Pennsy, Reading, Rock Island, Soo Line, Southern, SP, UP, and US-DOT.
Athearn released only three roadnames for the U30-C: C&O, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania. Athearn's nose headlight feature
makes none of the three roadnames prototypically accurate, as none of them bought this U-boat with a nose headlight.
