NW-2 Survivors

Both of WP’s NW2’s survived past merger day but only one on the WP roster proper as the 607 had transferred to the Sacramento Northern in May 1973. These two switchers had come to the WP through a trade with the Stockton, Terminal & Eastern. Originally UP D. S. 1000 and 1001 they had now returned to their original owner. UP was not sentimental though and the units were soon removed from the roster and disposed of by donation; one to the Heber Creeper Scenic Railroad in Utah, the other to the Feather River Rail Society in Portola, California.
