Oh man, trading a rust bucket old money pit for a working SD40-2? Seems like a no-brainer to me ;-)

Yes, like all modern UP power 4014 has roller bearings on all its axles, including the drivers. The rods are not equipped with roller bearings.

I don't really see what all the big fuss is about. Here in Heber we have been running a 4000 series Big Boy for several years!

The latest UP video, released today, features pictures of 4014 on its homebound odyssey and features a catchy, western-sounding theme to boot:

I thought it was really sharp how UP had the diesel 4014 in the lead, the steamer 4014, then diesel 4884 trailing. Wonder who had that bright, but very cool idea?
Kudos UP!
