Built by EMD exclusively for Union Pacific between 1969 & 1971, the DDA40X Centennial locomotives were the modern equivalent of the railroadís famed Big Boy steam locomotives. These massive 98-foot double-engine diesels were UPís mainstay hotshot power for a decade until they were sidelined by the recession of the early 1980ís. They had one last hurrah in 1984-85 when 25 of the them were returned to service for about a year to help relieve a power shortage.
