EMD GP28 Diesel-Electric Locomotive
An EMD GP28 is a 4-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between March 1964 and November 1965. Power was provided by an EMD 567D1 16-cylinder engine which generated 1,800 horsepower (1.34 MW). This locomotive was basically a non-turbocharged version of the EMD GP35. The GP28 is not to be confused with the EMD GP28M, a rebuild of the EMD GP9.

16 examples of this locomotive model were built for American railroads, 10 were built for Mexican railroads, and five were built for use in Peru.
