The last of the unpatched Rio Grande units on UP's roster. Nearly 20 years after the Rio Grande/Espee merger, this last SD40T-2 is more than likely making its last-ever trip across the Moffat. It is tentatively scheduled for retirement in Cheyenne...time will tell. There is also a rumor that it might be added to UP's heritage fleet (along with the DDA40X, E9's and Steam units), possibly even to be refurbished!? For the time being, it has clearly seen better days. Note that both number boards have been removed from the unit...never a good sign!
