Reply to "General Electric Engine of the 3-unit turbine Union Pacific, looking for drawings"

Great video Rusty!  I took some 35mm photos of it and a Centennial #6930 sitting side by side in south KCMO on storage tracks.....before the trade/move to IRM. I was already "ate up" with turbines at the time and had previously read they all came to to KC to be scraped....so this was a real surprise. Photos are not dated, but pretty sure this was mid 80's and I believe it sat there for the best part of the summer.

Since I had no permission to be near it, I photographed it from the ground and climbed up on top for roof top detail photos, but never got in the "A" or "B" unit like you did.  I figured being inside might be harder to explain to security/police/??? than just climbing around on it....but no one came or cared. The tender was painted black at that time.
