Travel by Train presents the EMD GP50 High Hood in 'Southern' livery for Train Simulator. The GP50 was the first model built by General Motors’ Electro-Motive Division to be equipped with microprocessor controls, similar to GE’s Dash 8 Series, which EMD saw as the main competitor to its own four-axle model. Powered by a 16-cylinder diesel engine, a total of 278 models were built between 1980 and 1985. The first railroad to take delivery was the Chicago and North Western Railroad, who saw the locomotives as power for high-priority trains such as intermodal services. Soon after, the Missouri Pacific Railroad, Southern Railway, and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway took delivery of GP50s, and although many of these railroads have since been absorbed, all GP50s remain in service today.

Southern Railway received them in two groups. The first delivered between September and December 1980 (7003-7072) and the second between May and June 1981 (7073-7092). All were equipped with high short hoods and wore black with imitation aluminum stripes and duluxe gold lettering. The number boards were black with white numbers. 7003-7016 were delivered with Locotrol, easily identified by white number boards with black numbers. They had most of the details as other Southern EMD's: nose mounted bell, 5-chime horns at each hood end, walkway lights, firecracker antennae, snowplows at each end. They did not have Southern's unique MU stands because of the large anticlimbers at each end.
