I just purchased two Atlas Series Dash 8-40C diesel electric locomotives in Direct-Current version in Union Pacific colors. I went shopping for a mixture of second and third generation Union Pacific motive power to handle coal trains and manifest freight cars on my Bayou Division, since UP has trackage rights on my layout.

The Atlas Dash 8-40C Silver series locomotive seemed to help bridge the gap. This 4,000-horsepower, six-axle diesel electric was purchased in large numbers by both Union Pacific and the wide safety cab Dash 8 40CW by the Santa Fe. These two large Class I railroads pass each other daily at Cajon Pass and Tehachapi Loop.
