Interestingly, this hospital train is configured with a manned mid-train helper, UP 8198. The crew on the unit was in constant contact with the crew at the end end. The equipment being donated to the Railroading Heritage of Midwest America museum is all head of UP 8198. The train also had some gondolas and center beam flats in tow, for what purpose, I am not sure.
