Default UP testing natural gas locomotive

Has anyone grabbed any shots of this engine? There should be a natural gas tender coupled to it. Here is a link to an article about it:

I can't see this working as well as its hoped to. Clean-burning gas never seems to.

UP has not yet received any new or converted units for natural gas testing yet. A pair of BNSF SD70ACe's #9130 and 9131 were recently converted to burn natural gas by EMD and are paired with a fuel tender but they have yet to be placed in service. They are currently at Topeka,KS undergoing static testing.

I did see a photo of the BNSF units in the latest issue of TRAINS magazine.
