A quint of SP SW1500s greets an old SD45T-2 & UP C40-8 in DRGW country?

According to UtahRails.net he is still on roster which I find very hard to believe. He is also listed as a SD40-2, while the Canadian Trackside Guide lists him as a SD45T-2... Whatever the case I'm just glad to be seing SP units (in SP paint) personally. At least four at the shops, including another SW1500 & UP 6292 AC4400CW. Not bad for 2009.
 
Hey hang out on the 8th ave BRIDGE is ALWAYS FULL OF SURPRISES. I DRIVE OVER IT EVERY DAY!

If the engine is still there I'll make sure to take more photos when I come back to Denver next January. Should have plenty of time now that I shot everything in the Pueblo desert lol.
