KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kaw River Railroad operations in Kansas City now feature two former Union Pacific SD60M’s in a paint scheme reflecting the line’s Watco ownership. The 6032 and 6033 are the first six-axle locomotives on the Kaw River, which operates former Kansas City Terminal Railway trackage in Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo.

The Electro-Motive Division locomotives, built in 1990, were repainted by Mid America Car in Kansas City, Mo.

In February, No. 6032 was seen outside the Mid America shop in a different paint scheme that featured a black nose and cab area. That scheme was not approved, leading to the version now worn by the 3,800-hp locomotives.

  1. It would be appreciated if the News Wire editor(s) could keep the red banner encouraging subscription at the end of the article out of the article itself. One cannot read or see the end of the article – or at times – the photo caption. Such is the case with this article and photo.
