Back in 2004, an old Southern Pacific (SP) tunnel motor, now under Union Pacific (UP) ownership and patched as UP 7905, is seen here on a westbound freight near Jefferson Avenue. This locomotive from what I can find online was former Southern Pacific (SP) 8566. I'm guessing the person who was doing this custom paint job got side tracked and didn't finish painting the locomotive.

The train is heading west on the TRRA's Merchants Subdivision, toward Grand Interlocking. At Grand Interlocking the train will get onto Union Pacific's Jefferson City Subdivision for the run across Missouri to Kansas City.
