Here's a Tunnel Motor that has seen better days! UP 9872 started life as DRGW 5407 many years ago. Now, the "Rio Grande" on the conductors side of the long hood is almost gone (and it is completely gone on the right side). The unit had been sitting in Burnham for the past four months and was seen here at the 36th Street Yard. The writing on the fuel tank says "Running from the answer brings us no closer to the truth".
