GP28 wheelbase

Postby scaro » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:30 am

online sources give different measurements between truck centres for GP28s.

HOSAM along with dieselshop US (admittedly an unreliable source) both say 31' .

Trainweb and others say 32' between truck centres.

does anyone know which is right?

Who do you trust more?

Why not split the difference?

If it's based on the GP35 (the Wiki page says it's a non turbo version of that), it should be the same wheelbase- 32'?
