The length of the locomotive was 67 ft 3 in (20.50 m), standard for U30C, U33C, U34CH, U36C, U36CG, C30-7 and C36-7. The U36C also had steel capped pistons.
218 units were produced between October 1971 and February 1975 for railroads in the United States and Mexico. A further 20 units of model U36CG (the passenger service variant of the U36C) were built for use in Mexico.
Between 1985-1987 Santa Fe's Cleburne shops rebuilt 70 U36Cs into C30-7 standards and were reclassified as SF30Cs.
