The last shot of the day on this President's Day. A former Espee GP40-2 (now UP 1456) and a former Espee GP40P-2 (now UP 1373) work the South Local on the branch at Military Junction leading to the industries at Cedar Creek. The GP40P-2 is now just a GP40-2 and has been for nearly thirty years! The steam generator was removed in 1985. But the extended long hood still remains. Unfortunately, some graffiti has appeared on the long hood.
