When the Union Pacific absorbed the Southern Pacific in 1996, a number of SD45T-2 diesels started parting ranks from the parent railroad. While the MRL or the SRY never owned the SD45T-2, there was a time where the railfan community was hopeful that these rag-tag units would find their way to the MRL. Former SP EMD 20-cyl diesels had made it to the MRL in the early 1990s, making this scenario plausible. In the summer of 2004 a group of NREX SD45T-2s were being stored in Livingston, MT. further fueling the hopes of railfans.

As some MRL power migrated to the SRY, it could have been possible that the SRY brought an ex MRL SD45T-2 diesel into British Columbia. While none of this happened in real, model railroading allows for bending the rules a bit and admiring what could have been.
