  1. Thanks for the information Stephen. It seemed like a ‘monster’ of an engine because it looked out of place on the OSR. Such modern power in amongst MLW’s and F units of the like! Knew there had to be a reason!

  2. These engines are not OSR’s – they are owned by UP/CITX respectively, and are on the premises on behalf of ZTR Control Systems (google for more).

    OSR shops are being used under contract by ZTR locally to install/test their latest developments, and every once in a while these locmotives are moved into the shops and out for ZTR to access them for work.

    It’s unknown if they will ever test on OSR in live service, but never say never, ZTR locomotives did test in 2010-2012 period when they were installing on CPR locomotives.

  3. Good question. I know the owner of OSR likes his locomotives..but this UP ‘monster’ as Todd puts it? I didn’t know they even ran 6 axels!

  4. What on earth is a monster of a UP unit doing on the little old OSR?
