UP 5716 leads an eastbound hospital train toward the east end of the yard in Cheyenne. The term "hospital train" is given to a train whose purpose is to move equipment off the property for the last time. Many such items are leaving the UP on this train as UP has donated a lot of equipment to the Railroading Heritage of Midwest America museum in Silvas, IL. First up behind UP 5716 is UP 3985, the 4-6-6-4 Challenger steam locomotive.
