Kevin, I just discovered this photo, and I like it a lot.

did not read all the footnotes of the UP roster. UP 712 from MP seemed to have replaced 712 from CNW/CR/NYC.

Very nice shot. Thank you very much for sharing all those shots from Colorado. Great website.
All 3 engines are all UP predecessors. UP 712 is a CNW GP40. Bad repaint job too. They should have left it alone...

They are all former D&RGW GP40-2's?

I would have to say the DRGW unit is sweet! But... I would say they all have running lights (ditch lights), but also they are all GP40-2's!

Nice job Matt! You are exactly correct - in both instances, I suppose. While all three units have plows, it was the heritage of the units I was going for. UP 1509 was SP 7131 (nee-BO 3712). UP 1352 was, of course, DRGW 3097. Lastly, UP 712 was originally MP 2212.

Well, for starters, all three have snow plows, though I'm guessing that's not where your getting at. I would say they are all patched or repainted from other railroads that UP has taken over.
