Caught this pair at West Chicago yard a few weeks ago. Its been a while since the UP had them running together. Showing signs of wear but none the less that sweet grainger logo still looks just fine. Thanks Uncle Pete smile.gif

Oh I don't know. I'd say they look pretty dang good considering how long it's been since they were delivered and painted.

Nice to see UP not touching the logos and such, even after the front door window blanking.

Very nice shots, Kevin. I hope these are never painted...at $12k a pop I think (I hope) UP will never get around to repainting them. Kevin, did you happen to find that SD40-2 that's still in CNW paint?
