Well, apparently pretty good.

Westbound UP Intermodal Train
Title:  Westbound UP Intermodal Train
Description:  The second train of the day featuring Heritage Locomotives, UP Train 2KG2LB 19 passes over the KCT High Line on their way to Armourdale for a crew change, and eventually the west coast. I wanted to catch the 1996 on this side of the state line because Armourdale Yard was SP/SSW After 1980. In fact, it came into town on the BNSF using ex-SP Trackage Rights which were passed to the UP.

Retired UP 103 - GE B23-7
Title:  Retired UP 103 - GE B23-7
Description:  This old girl was retired 12-20-06. Built at MP 4603 in January 1978 with a GE Builders Number of 41775. It got its UP number, along with a coat of yellow and gray paint on 7-28-1986. This particular paint job dates back to 10-4-95. You can still see just a little bit of Mo-Pac Blue in the frame stripe under the radiators where the trust plate once was. It was sold off at an auction in North Little Rock, AR on 10-8-09, and is was waybilled to the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad, I'm not sure why it ended up in Kansas City, but it turned around and went back to North Little Rock. However, while my MNA Job was in the city, I was able to snap a shot of her sitting in Terry Spur at UP Neff Yard. Hard to believe I got to run this thing way back in 2002 when I was 12. This was the first UP Dash-7 that I'd seen in probably a good 3 years, which sucks. The Dash-7's are the only GE's I like, it was a shame to see them go when they did.
