UP January 2000 Locomotive Fleet Changes

No new locomotives were delivered.

No Life Extension SD40-2s were completed.

The lease of 25 SD70s from EMD ended on 31 December 1999, and all 25 units were returned to EMD. (All units had been operating in California while leased to UP. The 25 units were leased to CSXT by EMD, and the units remained in California, equalizing motive power horsepower-hours owned by CSXT to UP resulting from UP units on run-through trains operating into CSXT territory.)

The lease of 21 units from Locomotive Leasing Partners (LLP) also ended on 31 December 1999. Included were three SD60s (EMDX 8300-8302), 15 SD40-2s (GSCX 7349-7358, 7374-7378), and three GP60s (LLPX 6001-6003).

The lease of 14 former C&NW GP38-2s (C&NW 4612-4625) ended on 31 January 2000, and the units were returned to their owner, CitiCorp.
