Remarks & Notes 
Oelwein was a major locomotive over hall and rebuild center for CNW after the 1968 merger with Chicago Great Western. It was also a place where locos would end their career. Fortunately for CNW 4405 a three year old GP15-1 at the time, its life was not over. It obviously suffered an engine room fire, but was rebuilt and continues service as Union Pacific UPY 550.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
