General Notes:

a. UP 850-887 were on long term lease from Helm Financial beginning in January 1989. All units had other owners prior to their lease to UP by Helm. Units received by UP between January and April 1989 entered service with their previous numbers, or with UP 850-series numbers and varying combinations of previous owners' paint. In April and May, these units were returned to Helm for reconditioning, and returned to UP service over the following months, through November in full yellow paint and 800-series numbers. Helm also leased four other GP40s (3000, 3013, 3020, and 3072) to UP during the period January through May 1989, but these units did not return as UP 800-series units.
b. Prior to entering UP service, all units were fully reconditioned by various contract rebuilding shops for Helm. Most were done by VMV Enterprises at Paducah, Kentucky. UP 875-881 are former MILW units, which had been previously leased by Helm to CN. These units were returned from Canada and reconditioned for Helm Financial, and repainted to UP 800s, by the Livingston Rebuild Center in Livingston, Mont.
c. UP 887 was renumbered from UP 598, which was exchanged to Helm in March 1990 to replace the wrecked UP 863. UP 887 was built as MKT 229, leased by MKT under a long-term operating lease that was to expire in June 1995. MKT 229 was renumbered to UP 598 on 5 May 1989. UP 598 suffered an engine failure in early September 1989 and was placed into storage awaiting repairs. After the wreck of UP 863, UP 598 was purchased from its owner/lessor, retired, and turned over to Helm to replace the 863, all in March 1990. The diesel engine from the wrecked UP 863 was used by Helm to replace the damaged engine in the 598. Also, the dynamic brake components of the wrecked 863 were applied to the new 887, which was built for MKT without dynamic braking. The rebuilding of UP 598 to UP 887 was done by VMV Enterprises of Paducah, Kentucky, and completed and shipped to UP on 20 February 1991. (Frame number 7192-19)
d. Of the 38 units in this group, 34 were returned to Helm in 1998 and 1999 and rebuilt to GP38-2s or GP38-3s, and leased back to UP as UP 2527-2588; these same 34 units were renumbered beginning July 2000 to UP 1027-1088, but not in UP 2500 series number sequence.
