This is, unfortunately, the best shot that I could get of UP 9860, formerly DRGW 5516. This unit has seen several paint scheme and several numbers since being delivered to the Grande in 1984. It started, of course, as DRGW 5516. It was later painted in the Espee fly letter scheme and numbered SP 5516. After the UP merger, it was the first former Grande SD50 to be repainted (November 14, 1997) and received the number UP 5110. That latest until August 8, 2002 when its number was changed to UP 9860. Here it sits in temporary storage at the Burnham shops.
