I'll wager that this unit (and others like it) won't be around on UP's roster long after this shot. This B40-8 (yep, a 4-axle unit) is actually of Espee heritage, delivered in 1987 as SP 8022. It was also delivered as a B39-8, but UP changed the designation in 1999. I suspect these units will follow the path of their "U-Boat" ancestors before long.
