Wonderful photos, but what is the point of having a GEVO lead the E units????
I heard that when its not leading the actual "Special" they put it on to Minimize the risk of Damage to the E9s. Aparently this was a one way Special and this train was just returing the cars back home.

A UP Employee told me that a lot of the time, the Executives will take the train out to the destination and then will fly back when they are done.
Nice work Brad, it good to see the SD40-2 hard at work. They did the same thing down here with the E9's put a freight unit on it pull it for both directions. Thanks for sharing.
