The Kansas City skyline accents this view of a westbound manifest pulled by UP (ex MP) B30-7A 248 and 2 CSXT units, SD40-2 8112 and GP40-2 6746 on Jan. 14, 1990.

The B30-7A was only purchased by the MP*, receiving 55 of them between November 1981 and February of 1982. The B30-7A was able to generate its 3000 HP with a 12 cylinder engine, compared to the 16 cylinder engine used in the B30-7.

*The BN received 120 B30-7AB’s, cabless versions of the B30-7A.
