Remarks & Notes 
Number 500 is the only GP40 on the MRL roster and has lots of history as it was originally Western Pacific 3542, Union Pacific 690, then Chicago Missouri and Western 3025, then Wisconsin Central 3025. After languishing in the Livingston, MT shop she finally got some attention and in recent years has been serving local and switching duties out of Missoula. Today, it is seen switching lumber cars in the Bonner Mill Industrial park in a summer squall. It was sunny a minute ago, give it a few more minutes for the cell will pass and the sun would return again.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, rainbows, and snow storms.
