Remarks & Notes 
The hulks of a UP SD60M and a GP60 wait at Pacific Rail Dismantlers in the old Colton Yard to be cut up. These units were wrecked in the San Timoteo Canyon Runaway of August 26, 2006. The train was the ETUWCB-25, a Tuscon-West Colton engine-only extra westbound of just nine locomotives and no cars. The runaway was due to a failed dynamic brake feature. SD60M #2448 came on the roster as #6293 in January of 1992. GP60 #2043 came on the roster as #5843 in June of 1991.
