UP4853GB_190407

A rare unflagged member of the Union Pacific 'flared' radiator SD70M fleet - No. UP 4853 (blt. EMD, London, Ontario, 12/01) was recorded - with all the underframe detail picked out by the lovely low sun - at Colton, California, on April 19th, 2007. I know it's not fashionable to like modern locomotives, but these are, for me, the best of the post-SD60 EMD designs.
