Remarks: Today (11-04-11) the A&M operated a joint Union Pacific / A&M grain train for the first time since January of 2009. Also this train is one of the first times that I myself have caught a train on the A&M using a DPU motor! Details are... Power: UP AC44 # 5680 - UP AC44 # 7133 - A&M C420 # 60 - A&M C420 # 58 with 75 loads of grain, and the rear unit was UP AC44 # 6580. Filmed in Rudy & Chester, Arkansas.
I have been around the A & M a long time and don't ever remember seeing UP power before either. I work one block away from their main office in Springdale and love the sound of trains going by all day.
