This GP38 (still in the body of a GP35) was the fourth unit on BNSF's Provo to Denver train. After being dropped off in Denver, the unit would depart the following day on BNSF's Denver to Galesburg, IL manifest. This is a Utah Railway unit that I had always wanted to shoot but never got the chance in Utah. How ironic that I was finally able to capture in right in my own back yard in Denver!

Rumor has it that the unit is off to Panama City, FL where it will be upgraded (rebuilt) as a GP38-3. Utah Railway sister unit UTAH 2000 is apparently there and being rebuilt as of this picture. So it would seem that UTAH 2002 will be returning to Utah Railway, but I guess only time will tell for sure.

Hi Kevin,  
Being raised in Helper, I saw these every day. I am impressed that they go out as far as Panama City Fla. Wow.
