Thanks to a tip I received the night before, I was aware that an unpatched Espee AC4400CW was leading a coal train down the Moffat. Finding an unpatched Espee unit is rare enough in 2015, let alone finding one on the point!

Don-  
 
A "patched" unit is one that has been moved in to the (owning) railroads roster. So, once patched, SP 352 will no longer be SP 352, but instead be UP ____. Not sure what that number will be right now.  
 
In addition, a physical patch is applied over the number on the cab. Here is an example of a patched unit.  
 
Hope this helps!
