In June 2012, General Electric release the 5000th copy of an Evolution Series (e.g. ES44AC, ES44DC, ES40DC, etc) locomotive. That unit happened to be part of a Union Pacific order. So celebrate the Tier 3 compliant locomotive, some custom labels were added to the nose and the side of the radiator housing.

That unit is getting some great mileage. Saw it leading a westbound off Donner Summit towards Roseville CA just a week ago yesterday (back on March 9th), so it did not linger long out there and ran right back to Rio Grande country!
