UP SD40-2s

Five old SD40-2s lead the Denver deadline:
UP 3281*-3296 (ret. Feb. 17 09)-3654-3458*-3681*
*Retired December 5, 2008

Note the paint scheme variety: Sun Scorched/regular/We Will Deliver

Two dozen more 40s parked in the sea of Dash 8s, SW1500s, GP15-1s, SD70Ms & C44ACs, some numbers:
UP 3657-3472-8803 (SD40T-2 ret. Aug. 21 01)-3538-3733-3574
UP 3208, 3336, 3169
It looks like the SD40-2's are on there way out!
Gotta keep the paint shop guys busy. They'd better give #3458 a shiny new coat before it's too late.
