    Default 844 (and freind) in Oregon

    Even after much cropping and re-sizing, most of the pics were still over the 100kb limit. More shots here,

    You know UP is serious about assimilating the SP when the 4449 gets patched! :+

    yeah especially when the 8444 had to loose the last 4 to make way for SD70Ms (now 8444 belongs to a SD70ACe). Now the 4449 has to loose it's number to another SD70M.... Lord what is this world comming to. could they at least paint the patch to match the colors of the locomotive....?

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I believe that actually the 8444 wasn't renumbered to 844 to make room for a SD70M. The loco's original number many years ago was 844 and it was renumbered to 8444 to make room for a diesel locomotive in the 60's or 70's. It has it's original correct number now.

    As for the 4449 being patched, the yellow patches are decals stuck on and not paint. They can be removed later. It's odd that UP used the UPY designator which is for yard locomotives.

    I'm pretty sure you're right about the 844 being the original number; I seem to remember seeing pictures of her in action back in the 50s with it. Same goes for later photos of her as the 8444.

    I believe it was renumbered to give room for 844 to a GP30.

    UP 844 was renumbered to 8444 account UP receiving an 800 series GP30 with the number 844. After the GP30 844 was retired (it still lives in UP paint on a tourist line) The FEF-3 was renumbered back into the 844 slot.

    If painting a UP number on the side keeps her in steam, I'll learn to live with it!
