I am not sure if this was already posted or not. Would anyone have any current info on the old MK 5000C's,I also understand (assume) that these were built in 3 phases. Where and who now owns them,are they in service?

All six MK5000Cs were rebuilt as MK50-3s, and are in service on the Utah Railway.

The three blue MK5000C's that were originally leased to the Union Pacific looked very nice in their early operation. I saw the three together, passing through the Blue Mountains in Oregon on the point of SENPZ when they were new. They broke the set up shortly afterwards, and I do not know if they ever had any occasions when all three of them operated together again.
