Remarks & Notes 
A "Baby Huey" in the Bull Ring... One of eSPee's three dual-engined U50s awaits its fate in the "Boneyard" section of the Bull Ring. It was delivered as #8502 in June of 1964 and retired in January of 1976. By this time, #9550 had already been scrapped. #9552 later followed, with #9551, being sold to Chrome Crankshaft on December 28, 1978, being sent to Terminal Island and meeting the torch at National Metals. GP9 #3305 with the exposed gears and missing genarator, was later rebuilt.
