How could UP 669 be seen on the mainline in 2010 and the line have been embargoed in 2008 with nothing moving on it since then?

There was another 669 on the UP after this one. It was a GP38-2. This, however, is a GP40.

Also, the "Baldwin" is actually an ALCO of some kind, judging by the trucks, most likely a S-3 or S-4.

Good question. Copy this link and tell me: Perhaps the date on the picture is wrong?

EL ROCO...Notice that the locomotive in your link has no dynamic brake blister?

That's a completely different locomotive in your RR Pic link. That is a GP38-2. Your photo is of a GP40. The engine behind it is an Alco, not a Baldwin.

This engine is a GP40 (ex UP 669; ex MKT 234; ex CR 3108; nee PC 3108), the loco in the other photos is a GP38-2. Here is a photo of this loco from a different angle:

If nothing else, the loco in this picture has dynamic brakes but the one in the rrpicturearchives picture does not. They are not the same loco...

Hollywood definitely needs to consider filming a zombie apocalypse movie around this area. I mean just look at the place. I hope these two old locomotive do not get scrapped. Thanks for posting this awesome line of interesting photos. I hope you do not mind me putting a lot of it into my one albums called, "things that would be cool to model in HO scale."
