OK, so this isn't actually a UP unit, but another definite curiousity. HLCX 3201 and 3203 were routed over the former SP from the Los Angeles Harbor to St. Louis. These units seem to be former Kaiser Bulk Terminals units. Now, if you look carefully, you'll see that HLCX3201 has the upper half of its cab in primer brown, due to the fact that this part of the cab was grafted back on since the unit was "topless" for many years so that it would fit through the rotary dumper at Kaiser. Seen here at Dolores, CA on March 10, 1998, HLCX3201 only made it as far as Los Nietos, CA by March 22 due to some missing components.
