Remarks & Notes 
Here we see a shot of a unique piece of UP equipment - the 'Snow Bus' caboose. The UP uses UP25809, a former bay window caboose that has had its end porches enclosed to create greater room on the inside, to shuttle relief crews (sandwiched between two engines) into the remote areas of the Colorado Rockies when needed, either due to snow or severe cold.
