Don't you just hate it when your scanner breaks up at just the wrong times? I had heard the dispatcher contact this eastbound coal load and address them as "__P ___314 east" ... now, I didn't realize I had missed the leading six, and thought it might be SP 314! Alas, not that lucky on this particular day. The train is moving on an Advanced Approach signal, prepared to enter the siding at Leyden to meet four westbounds.

There seems to be different variations as to where the UP shield is placed on former SP AC's. This is the first time I have seen two small UP shields on the front of the locomotive.
