Robert Culp
August 16, 1930 - March 24, 2010

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of actor Robert Culp on March 24, 2010. We were fortunate enough to experience his work through the computer game Half-Life 2, when he wrestled invisible headcrabs, expressed a passionate interest in animation, and taught us all how to bring a character to life from words on a page, as he voiced one of gaming's most beloved villains, Dr. Wallace Breen. He will be missed.

It is undeniable that the creation of the GP (General Purpose) 7 changed railroading drastically. The GP7 units were designed by Dick Dilworth of EMD. His goal was to make a road switcher which would work well "out where the real work was being done." The design was based on observations from Alco and Baldwin Locomotives, as well as considerations of the needs of a freight train crew.
