U.P. was most likely moving the historical power in place for a company business train or other special. Since the locomotives are based in Cheyenne and the passenger cars are based in Council Bluffs, it's not unusual for them to be moved to Omaha to be used on a train to the east or back to Cheyenne. As to why they are on a freight? Well, you might as well make them do a little work while they are burning up fuel. Even 844 and 3985 get a freight now and then.
I think they try to sneak a lot of things around at night, this is just my opinion, but ive noticed it with other railroads too. Like how or when did 3 GO Transit engines come all the way down to the TRE line in texas without discussion or no pictures of them being moved. And when did the 3 UP passenger cars that came down to texas wiith the 1989 a few months ago go back north, or are they still in Hearne or Houston?
