UP B23-7 107
Title:  UP B23-7 107
Description:  Union Pacific Railroad B23-7 107 at Norfork, Arkansas on November 15, 1992, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 107 was built as Missouri Pacific 2296 in January 1978 (c/n 41779), and was wrecked at Gorham, Illinois on May 17, 1978 when it rear-ended a stopped Cotton Belt train. It was repaired with an EMD Spartan Cab, the only B23-7 or B30-7A so repaired on the MP. Later renumbered to MP 4706, it became UP 107 on January 22, 1988. It was retired by the UP on April 26, 2005, and on August 1, 2007 became UPY 2678.

Description:  Union Pacific Railroad B23-7 107 at Cotter, Arkansas on November 15, 1992, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was wrecked five months after delivery as MP 2296. This shows the adapter piece that the MP shops fabricated to mate an EMD cab to a GE locomotive.

UP B23-7 107
Title:  UP B23-7 107
Description:  Union Pacific Railroad B23-7 107 at Norfork, Arkansas on November 15, 1992, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was wrecked five months after delivery as MP 2296. A replacement GE cab was not available, so the MP shops adapted an EMD cab to a GE locomotive.

UP 107
Title:  UP 107
Description:  Delivered new in 1978, wrecked five months later and rebuilt with an EMD cab. 107 was retired April 2005 and returned as RP20 2678 sans the EMD cab. If my memory serves, there are a few other MP GEs with EMD cabs and an SD40 with a GE cab somewhere.

UP Local Assigned Locomotives
Title:  UP Local Assigned Locomotives
Description:  Here's UP 107, the only B23-7 with an EMD Cab, applied by Mo-Pac after a wreck at Gorham, IL in May 1978 when the unit was only 5 months old. It was used as a local unit in Bluff back in 2002. Sadly, it was retired on April 26, 2005. It became a rebuild core, and was rebuilt into RP20GE Genset UPY 2678 in July 2007, which still rides around on this very frame and trucks. See a picture of it here: http://www.trainweb.org/gensets/railpower/upy/2678.html .
