The Iowa Interstate railroad acquired a motley collection of GP9s in 1985-86. Several of the geeps were former WP units that had been acquired by UP. Although they were repainted into yellow and grey, it is unlikely that they turned a wheel in revenue service for UP. The IAIS never did get around to repainting all of them, but they did manage to get almost 10 years’ worth of good service from the veteran units. All units:

Phase II GP9s
Former WP units
Leslie 3-chime horn on long hood
Winterization hatch
Large UP style armrests
No footboards or hose holders on pilots
Large front & rear MU stands

Firecracker antenna
Cut fuel tank skirts
Patching & fading to depict the in-service look of this unit, including outline of former UP logo on nose
Used on the IAIS from 1985 to 1995.
