PC locomotives also found a home on UP.  When in UP territory, keep your
eyes peeled for the following GP-40s:

UP 860 -- originally NYC 3076 
UP 861 -- originally NYC 3065
UP 862 -- originally NYC 3082
UP 863 -- originally NYC 3091
UP 872 -- originally NYC 3074 
UP 873 -- originally NYC 3073 
UP 884 -- originally NYC 3101 

UP has been chronically short of power for the last few years, but is
buying AC4400s like gangbusters.  The old, less efficient GP-40s
probably won't last that much longer.
