Sometime around 2004, UP was really getting into remote controlled locomotives. This allows a person on the ground to control a locomotive using a remote control pack. Since locomotives had to be retrofitted with RCL equipment, UP got creative and took some old B30-7's, added the RCL equipment, and removed virtually everything else. This allowed these units to be hooked up to any power in the yard and control them remotely for switching.
