As of September 1996

Compiled by Don Strack

September 1996 Total: 2,394 units

Total SP: 2,196 (2,210 including 14 slug units)

Total D&RGW: 184

Ownership of all D&RGW equipment, including its locomotives, was transferred to UP ownership on 1 June 1997.

(By July 2016, there was only one former SP AC4400CW still in SP paint. That ended on July 29, 2016 when SP 343 was repainted as UP 6308. Scott Thomas wrote on Trainorders.com, "It was the last locomotive working on the UP with SP reporting marks. Currently it is still in the Jenks Shop at North Little Rock, AR, but it should be back out on the road within a few weeks wearing a new coat of Armour Yellow. There are around 100 ex-SP locomotives still on the UP roster that have avoided UP paint thus far with only a patch renumbering. The numbers of the "patches" have been dropping fast lately, with a long overdue repainting push by the UP currently in progress. In the end, it has taken a little short of 20 years for the last SP lettered locomotive to become a UP lettered locomotive.")

By the time of the UP-SP merger, SP had repainted 23 units from their original D&RGW paint scheme to SP's newer "Speed Lettering" paint scheme. The first was ex D&RGW 3086, completed in July 1992. Although all were still D&RGW units, UP considered all 23 units to be SP locomotives. Included were:
