Five EMDs pull a large Union Pacific LJP45 “dirt train” local onto the Sunnyside Branch at Mounds, Utah, on the morning of November 20, 2003. Rio Grande SD40T-2s Nos. 5349, 5371 and 5390 bracket UP SD40-2 Nos. 3505 and 3736 as power and smoke it up a bit heading off the Green River Subdivision main line.
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service over several decades.
