Anyone know if UP #7474 ( an ES44AC, or C45ACCTE as UP calls them) was involved in any derailment somewhere? I saw it today over at KCS's Knoche Yard waiting to head over to Mid-America Car to be repaired and pretty much most of the engineer's side of the locomotive has been badly damaged.

Couldn't find anything specific as to how or when the unit was damaged. Best I saw was that someone saw it in UP's Van Buren AR yard on 10/21/2011 with heavy damage to the engineer's side of the unit.
