U.P.'s first order of 4-6-6-4s were (I think) originally numbered in
the 8000 series, but as time went on they seem to have been either
renumbered, or later Challenger orders were give lower numbers.
Problem is, nobody in our club models U.P., and other than admitting
to some confusion as to why U.P. numbered some locos they way they
did, they can't be of any help.
Does anyone have a web reference that can straighten out the question
of exactly what the original Challenger road numbers were, and when
U.P. changed them, Etc.? So far Google hasn't yielded anything useful,
but maybe I'm asking it the wrong questions...
