Title:  UP 659, conductor's side, 7-19-2014
Description:  UP 659 still has the old style (ex-MoPac?) lettering on the conductor's side, plus an open door or two, as it works in the UP yards at Jefferson City, MO on 7-19-2014. Note the angled or beveled air filter box, and the plain hood, indicating this unit doesn't have dynamic brakes.

UP 659, conductor's side view
Title:  UP 659, conductor's side view
Description:  UP 659 has the old-style paint scheme, and a font for the "Union Pacific" lettering that's different from most other UP engines. This unit doesn't have dynamic brakes. Note the air conditioner on the cab (they needed it!) and the battery box panel in a lighter color. This unit was in the UP yards at Jefferson City, MO on 8-02-2014.

KCS 4148 UP Yard Job Train
Title:  KCS 4148 UP Yard Job Train
Description:  The Herington Dodger, for at least a week in November had to swipe the most ready thing available, a KCS SD70ACe to comply with labor rules of having two units on the yard job. Very odd to see a high horsepower, foreign road motor as a yard switcher
