Hi Guys,

 I’ve looked at some photos and the DW AH-190 would be correct for GP-30. I was wrong, sorry.

Hi Guys,

 Just wanted to say thanks for all of the info. I was looking at the Details West and Detail Associates for the Antennas. DA has a wipe antenna, DA 101802, that may work. If not I’ll put the Firecracker on in the correct location until I can find the proper part. For the horns I’ll go with the Details West DW AH-190 the two front bells are off but it’s close enough. The other one they have listed is AH-347 Shrouded 3-Chime CB&Q, GN. 

 Even though some operators may never know the difference in the details I’ll feel better knowing that they are as close as I can get them. 

Thank You All,

Randall...Looking at photos in Holck's color pictorial, these are the following from 1968/69, all horns relocated:

945  quarter wave ant.  can't see horn
949  quarter wave ant.  two chime horn
955  quarter wave ant.  two chime horn
957  firecracker ant.     blat horn
948  quarter wave ant.  two chime horn
959  quarter wave ant.  two chime horn
970  quarter wave ant.  can't see horn
975(1964)  quarter wave and two chime

Spoor  vol 4:

952 quarter wave ant  two chime horn

These are just a few that I found. Also keep in mind that P2K did both versions of the GP30. The second order, 970-977 had the left rear of the cab slightly longer. 

Hope this helps a little moer.
