Friday’s Union Pacific MPECL

I caught Union Pacific’s MPECL this afternoon, and glad I did.

The 27th car, UTLX 600827, displays a Corn Products logo, which means the
car is leased to Ingredion Inc. I’ve never seen a Corn Products/Ingredion
tank car on this train before, so UP has new business, probably sorbitol
consigned to a western (or Mexican) customer. (Ingredion owns a sorbitol plant at Mapleton, served by the TP&W.)

A pair of SD70Ms, UP 4116 & UP 4950, are shown pulling a 31-car train past the Akron Services elevator north of Dunlap.
