looks amazing, i've only seen it in person a few times. yeah, it was rebuilt at the same time as the E-units, interesting fact on the e-units, when they were re-built, the electrical cabinet and diesels were replaced with ones from retired gp-35's! so they arent e-units in reality, they are just verry pretty gp-35's :D

Wow! What a heck of a catch. Thanks for sharing the pics. :)

One thing I would like to know is how is it possible to find out when and where that thing will be when it's traveling around the country? I'd like to take time off to see it but never know when it will be around.

Thanks Matthew, I'll keep my eyes open on that site. In the times I've checked the UPRR excursion page it never mentioned it.

George Riley Curry was the fellow I think Greg is referring to. George was kind enough to send me copies of the paperwork and engine specification docs that he used to model the engine. At some point I plan to scan them and post them on my website, but goodness so much time has passed I never did. If someone plans to do a conversion of one of these let me know and I'll get on it.

i read on another train site that they were testing it on track thru Idaho and into Washington State




Yes, it came thru Spokane the other day with a full business train, including two domes.
