This is one of only two unpatched Espee GP60s left on UP's roster at this time, the other being SP 9721. The paint is definitely looking a little shoddy, but I felt pretty lucky to come across one of the only "unassimilated" units left on UP's roster! Unfortunately, the unit was pretty well tucked back in North Yard, so I had to settle for this "over the fence", "from a distance shot" from 48th Avenue.

Wow, great to see that this unit is one of the survivors! It served quite a bit on the Ski Train back in the 1992/1993 seasons. So, for it to be in North Yard is a little like it coming home...  
 
(Nothing wrong with the paint that a few gallons of Turtle Wax wouldn't remedy!)  
 
Thanks for the updates, Kevin!
