Remarks & Notes 
UP's only coal turbine electric makes a test run as many officials look on. This locomotive was an experimental and didn't run very much as it was deemed a failure. A set of diesels was always in the consist for protection power. In service photos are extremely rare. Photo was taken by Jack Pfeifer.
