Remarks & Notes 
A 1959 GP20 (the world's 2nd and one of ten the WP rostered) sits among 1978 Ford Pickups and Thunderbirds in Speed Yard. This was a utility yard for making quick moves either into Ford, or for the purpose of sorting autoracks to go into the Hadley Auto Carrier Ramp tracks. Hadley delivered Fords to showrooms. The GP20 surives today, now with a chopped nose (as RLCX 2001) working at an Exxon facility at Shute Creek WY.
