Remarks & Notes 
Built in UP's Omaha shops in 10/61 as Coal Turbine units 8080 and 8080b. 8080 was originally Union Pacific Alco PA-1 #607; 8080B was originally Great Northern GE electric #5018, purchased by UP 9/59. The Coal Turbine was unsuccessful and both units were retired March 1968. Photo part of my collection, photographer Richard Kindig.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
