A pair of sharp-looking GP40-2s sit on the "run around" track in North Yard, awaiting their next assignment. One of these two units is very familiar with North Yard as it has called it home for a very long time. UP 1359 started life as DRGW 3118. It was patched to its current number on September 15, 2005 and received a full repaint in 2013. UP 1459, 100 numbers higher, started life as (Cotton Belt) SSW 7600. It was patched in 2002 and fell into solid UP colors around the same time as UP 1359.
