Of the UP's cab cars, the ones I know for sure haven't been overhauled yet include 8430, 8451, 8461, 8463, 8465, and 8472. Its seems that most of the 8400s have been rebuilt now. I'll miss their K5la horns!

As far as I know, it's the only 6-window coach we've gotten back. This is the 3rd group back from VRE - the original 5 coaches back in '08, a batch of 5 cab cars that kind of snuck in under the radar sometime later, and this latest batch of 5 coaches and a cab. Overall, that makes 16 back from VRE (most in service), 14 back from Utah (all in service), 11 back from MARC last June (not yet in service, at least as far as I know) and one random cab car (8701) returned from a dealer, also in service (I don't know specifics - reported on ChiTransit.org).
