Conveyance, with Class

Union Pacific's unique DD40AX Centennial #6936 brings some color and an inspection train thru Conroe, Tx on a dull overcast day in late November 2000. Onboard are various UP officials and employees, hence it's recent and very obvious cleaning. How much Mother's car wax does one ~100' locomotive take?

The next day a massive wreck damaged the engine and killed an employee riding in the engine. The resulting repairs and upgrades, while returning it to warranted glory and useability, forever changed the look of this massive beauty.
