Your ex-Pennsy GP30 is a little older than you said. Production of the  908 GP30s was from March 1962 to November 1963. The demonstrator was built in July 1961.  
The Pennsy GP30s #2200-2251 were built between February and May 1963. See http://community-1.webtv.net/ajkristopans/ROADSWITCHERS567/page3.html for production data and serial numbers on the GP30s.

The 501 pics are mine and i hope you like um all the 501 was built in 1965 by EMD and was used on the pennsylvaina Railroad and went to the WMSR in 1995 but after the PRR it was used on Conrail...............The pic above and all of the 501 pics were taken on the 2nd of oct 2005 the 501 was shut down case of hot metal pices down in the fans and the prime move was smoking. THe crew got it started up but it is know out of service for the 2005 season beacuse of a caboose hit a swithch derailed and wrecked about 5 feet in the engineer's sine of the cab.

I always thought the GP 30s were cool,especially the UP GP30Bs. I considered the high nose GP30s to be among the ugliest diesels ever built.
