UP 7400 on the Rio Grande
Author: eatontm

An illusive Union Pacific coal empty bound for West Elk, CO, made for quite a nice sight in evening light down the Dotsero Cutoff behind recently repainted UP 7400. The train will head for Richmond, CA once loaded.

Red Canyon west of Burns, CO.

Beautiful scenery and a nice looking unit.  Since the pink ribbon was painted on and the unit cleaned up, it has been in coal service most of its trips---saw it here in Oklahoma on 4 turns.

I like Union Pacific ES44AC 7400. Has special meaning for me as I lost "My True Railroader" a.k.a. my Wife Pam just over one year ago to cancer. She was a 32 years Amtrak employee. Lets pray we find the cure soon for all cancers. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful image... So why has UP decided to end the AC4400 stronghold and start using GEVOs and ACes in coal service?

Super crisp image! Perfect balance of train, river, rockformations and sky in your photograph.

Hell of a shot! Well earned IOTD. UP 7400 looks really sharp in the new paint--she needed it.

When they get to Bond does the power have to run around the train?
