UP SD70ACe #4141 is currently at the East end of the Jenks Diesel Shop, being towed with a power set of SD70M's. No idea where it's heading. Appears to be heading south.

From what I've heard about 4141, its going to be redone soon, and be put back into standard UP colors. Is this a possibility for what may be going on?

I still believe that UP will not spend the money to re-paint it when they have plenty other locomotives that really need a paint job.

Hope it roams the system!

I completely agree. UP does too. UP has stated they will not repaint any of their special locomotives into Armour Yellow. They havent repainted the SLC Olympics SD70Ms, they didnt repaint the United Way SD40-2, they made a deal with GB41, and they fully intend on keeping it up.

The reason 4141 has stayed at Jenks is political, nothing more or less.
