The ship was built in 1899 and was at the time the biggest ship in the world. Her design was considered as quite elegant with many describing her as “yacht-like”. As the flagship of White Star, she operated on the Liverpool--New York kine until the outbreak of WW1. She became the first White Star Liner on which a mutiny took place: in 1905, 30 coalers took possesion of the ship demanding better work conditions. The ship tried but wasn’t able to help the RMS Titanic during her sinking in 1912, being too far away.
She was lost on 7 September 1914, when she collided with a cliff near the Scottish island Foula after having been converted into an auxiliary cruiser. (Wikipedia)

The designation of a rebuilt GP30, this one in June 1981. The original GP30 was delivered from EMD in May 1962. "[Santa Fe] performed a similar upgrade in its own Cleburne, Texas shops, stripping the locomotives down to bare metal and rebuilding with new equipment. The 567D3 engines were upgraded to a 2500-horsepower rating by the use of 645-series power assemblies. The generators and traction motors were upgraded and control and electrical equipment was replaced. The trucks received Hyatt roller bearings and single-clasp brake systems. Rooftop air conditioners and new horns were added. The locomotives were repainted in the blue and yellow Yellowbonnet scheme, and designated GP30u (for upgraded). 78 of these survived until the BNSF merger, and were eventually all sold off."
