You're right, guess I didn't see it. Definitely a neat piece of equipment. Only a few are still around, and it was one of my primary reasons for visiting the museum, to get some detail shots.
 
Here's another one, a Centennial engine.

Y'all are too rich for my blood... but I will throw in one of Uncle Pete's EMDs that wandered into upstate NY last month:

9752, one of a few remaining SP units yet to be patched in Armour Yellow. The conductor side battery box had been replaced with a yellow one, the reason I was on the wrong side of the sun for this shot. Port Arthur local, Beaumont TX.

Union Pacific SD59MX models used for Redding local train out of Roseville.  These units have the 3200HP version of the 710 motor and the units are rebuilt with the flaired radiator, crash resistance fuel tank and new 710 motor with computer controls.   Nice looking units.

There are a lot of nice looking pictures in this thread. You don't often see UP power in Chenango Forks, NY, but I remember about seven years ago one of the 2002 Winter Olympics torch relay locomotives ended up leading a consist on the NYS&W. It looks like they were traveling light.

Posting in correct thread.
 
Once in a Lifetime? From left to right: 2010 (100 years of Scouting), 7400 (Pink Ribbon), all six heritage units, a normal UP SD70ACe, and 7964 (5000th GEVO). Was part of UP preparing for Railfest in North Platte this year.  
 
Sorry for large image, but it's the only way to see everything:

Since UP power is pretty rare her in Fargo, I offer you this shot.  It's been doctored to lighten it up-since the sun was still rising and had not gotten around yet to provide proper lighting!  Shot this morning about 7:50 am:
