The U30C was one of the first successes of General Electric in the diesel locomotive market. With 600 units sold, the U30C proved to be a viable alternative for customers who could not purchase SD40 or SD40-2 locomotives from EMD due to production backlogs. As the U30C hit the market, rail companies began to understand the benefits of high horsepower six-axle locomotives. This meant that the model was able to hold its own well in the market despite reliability problems. A total of 606 locomotives of this type were manufactured for 18 Class 1 railway companies, the US Department of Transportation and the Mexican Ferrocarril del Pacifico until the end of production in 1976.
