Three great looking, freshly painted GP40-2s provide power for the westbound Rocky Local. The local has been getting a late start the last few weeks. It hasn't been getting out of North Yard until mid-to-late afternoon.

Had to check the rosters to see what these were. No. 1502 used to be SP GP40M No. 7124, a unit I'd photographed many times over the years in Colorado (mostly around Pueblo/Alamosa). No. 1337 started life in MKT colors but has been UP for quite a while now...

Always nice to see old "friends", even in disguise!  
 
Oh, and nice photo, Kev.

Oh Kev, this is a great one. Beautiful colors in the sky and yet subtle enough to allow the bright yellow stand out.
