UP 1824
Author: dcfbalcoS1

          UP 1824 was the third unit on a west manifest last week in Liberal, Kansas. The unit is equipped with auto start as it cranked up a few times I was there but was not on line. Heard it was going to be set out in Dalhart Texas for some minor maintenance work. May be used there for a while.
          Rare to get SD40N units here, and nice wings on the nose too.

If that’s what I think it is, we call those “snoots” up in pac nor west BN land. The long nose was for early DP equipment?

Cool picture...can’t be very many around anymore.

There's a bunch of SD40N's running around Southern California. West Colton Yard is full of them.

I see it has a winter window on it so the engineer can lean out the window but not have to keep the window open in cold weather. It may see an assignement up  north this winter....?

Several years ago U.P. rebuilt 500 SD40-2's into SD40N's so they will be around for at least another decade..

         This unit came back east today ( thursday ) as the trailing unit on a 157 car manifest and it was on line today.
