GP9, of course - the most produced GP in history "EMD constructed 3,626 GP9s, including 165 GP9Bs.[3][4] An additional 646 GP9s were built by General Motors Diesel, EMD's Canadian subsidiary, for a total of 4,257 GP9s produced when Canadian production ended in 1963" And don't forget the little known GP3...I have one running on my layout in PRR colors

 

EMD produced at least 4,272 GP9s because the source used in that Wiki article didn't include the 15 GP9s exported to South America. My apologies to Dr. Louis Marre for a mostly otherwise excellent North American reference . . .

Because I model 1954, GP-7's and GP-9's. The rest don't exist in my world.

As my primary, it would have to be GP20.

However...

And a special place for the passenger Geeps - Torpedo Boats.

As a secondary I would agree with you. (I have a pair for my model railroad.)

38-2 or 40

Now if Atlas or Athearn did a GP38-3 I would be very happy!
