UP GP40 509 George's Creek
Title:  UP GP40 509 George's Creek
Description:  Union Pacific Railroad GP40 509 and 502 at Yellville, Arkansas on December 11, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 509 appears to have been originally MKT GP40 203. It is pictured on the George's Creek bridge, the original bridge structure was built in April 1903, a 1900 foot long, 60 foot high wood trestle, built to accept engines weighing 86 tons, and in 1903 there was no highway below it. I'm researching when the steel replacement was built, sometime in the 1930's. Previous to the steel replacement, the speed restriction on the wood trestle was 12 mph. Quote from Mike Adams book: "One of the more far reaching programs outlined in 1915 was to fill in 47 of the 57 high trestles between Cotter and Crane. The other 10 would be re-built as steel and concrete trestles. The original trestles were built with the best grade of wood but their useful life was approaching an end. As work progressed it became apparent that earthen fill was the best method, and eventually only four of the great trestles were re-built with steel although some were a combination of fill and steel due to circumstances. Work started in 1915 and was not completed for another 20 years. The longest bridge, that spanned the George's Creek Valley, was 1900 feet long." The bridge is perhaps 50 years old by the time of the photograph, and crosses over a highway, which in turn crosses over a creek. There are several triple crossings of this nature in the US, here is one. Most of this information is from the book, 'The White River Railway', by Walter (Mike) Adams.

UP 588
Title:  UP 588
Description:  Built in November 1969 for MKT as GP40 218, this diesel became UP 588 in January 1990. February 1998 brought a new number, UP 805, and on May 29, 1998 this old timer was sold to Helm and rebuilt to GP38-3 standards. After rebuilding and the addition to dynamic braking this like new diesel returned to UP as 2580. Another renumbering brought 1060 to the cabside and finally in 2010 this well traveled unit was released by UP and now works for Helm Leasing under the same number. A well travelled EMD for sure!
