I only see three valves. What happened to the other two?

I've forgotten most of what I used to know, but is that a no-dynamic-brakes EMD-made SD45 ?

If my train knowledge doesn't lead me astray, that is probably a former CNW unit. They ordered theirs without the DB....

20 cylinder prime mover means it would have 80 valves. Even Dr. Young would likely be satisfied.

That would seem about right for the combined weight of a 2165 tuba and the average tuba player. :lol:

The loco in question is an SD60 - built for and always owned by UP - part of a 60 unit order - original # was 6010 - renumbered 2165:
"Owner: Union Pacific Railroad Company
Model: EMD SD60 Built As: UP 6010 (SD60)
Serial Number: 847028-11 Order No: 847028
Frame Number: 847028-11 Built: 4/1986
Other locos with this serial: UP 2165(SD60) UP 6010(SD60)"

1 big difference....THAT 2165 uses diesel as fuel while most 2165 players run on beer.

Diesel engine has pistons, electric motors are rotary. The best of both worlds.
