CommemorativeEdit

Heritage unitsEdit

Six EMD SD70ACe locomotives are painted in the liveries of railroads acquired by Union Pacific. The company says the locomotives "pay homage to those railroads and the generations of men and women who helped to build a great nation and the foundation for our future".[2]

  • Union Pacific 1982: Serial number 20046610-071, painted in Missouri Pacific Railroad colors. EMD delivered it on May 29, 2005, to UP. The locomotive was unveiled together with number 1983 in a private ceremony on July 30, 2005 in Omaha, Nebraska, after which it entered regular revenue service.[3]
  • Union Pacific 1983: Serial number 20046610-075, painted in Western Pacific Railroad colors. Delivered on June 6, 2005; unveiled with UP 1982 on July 30, 2005, after which it entered regular revenue service. As UP 1982, it has a C-C wheel arrangement with a standard track gauge of 4 ft 8+12 in (1,435 mm).[3]
  • Union Pacific 1988: Serial number 20046610-088, painted in Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad or "Katy" colors. Delivered on June 15, 2005, unveiled in early August 2005, after which it entered regular revenue service on August 4, pulling a train from Chicago to East St. Louis.[3][4]
  • Union Pacific 1989: Serial number 20056723-098, painted in Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad colors. Delivered on May 24, 2006, unveiled on June 17, 2006, at a special UP employee event in Denver, Colorado.[3][5]
  • Union Pacific 1995: Serial number 20056723-099, painted in honor of Chicago and North Western Railway, which became a part of Union Pacific in 1995. The locomotive, painted at the Horicon, Wisconsin, shops of Wisconsin and Southern Railroad, was unveiled at a private ceremony for UP's ex-CNW employees at Proviso Rail Yard in suburban Chicago on July 15, 2006, before being publicly displayed at North Western Station (C&NW's former station) in Chicago. After its unveiling, the locomotive pulled freight train MPRCB from Proviso to Council Bluffs, Iowa, in conjunction with CNW 8646 and 8701 (a set of GE Dash 9-44CW locomotives at the time still in CNW paint). The 1995 then entered regular revenue service, eventually operating through Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. In 2020, the locomotive suffered some electronic issues and was put out of service. A year later, 1995 was put back into service on April 2, 2021. However, in June 2021 it suffered mechanical problems and was again removed from service. A few days later, 1995 was returned to regular service [3][6]
  • Union Pacific 1996: Its paint scheme is based on both the Daylight and "Black Widow" paint schemes of the Southern Pacific Railroad. It was unveiled on August 19, 2006, and is currently operating in regular revenue service. Southern Pacific 6051, a Daylight-painted EMD E9 locomotive that is preserved at the California State Railroad Museum was in attendance at UP 1996's unveiling. UP 1996's road number was previously held by an SD40-2 (originally UP 3339), which was repainted and renumbered for the 1996 Olympics.[3][7] On January 26, 2014, No. 1996 helped move "Big Boy" locomotive No. 4014 from Pomona, California, to West Colton, California.[8] The locomotive pulled the Big Boy out of the Los Angeles County Fairplex, and continued to provide power for the rest of the trip, along with SD70M 4884 and SD40Ns 1596 and 1736.[7] In June of 2021, 1996 suffered some issues and was put out of service in deadline at North Little Rock, Arkansas. In July of 2021, 1996 was reactivated and has been set in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, pulling the local or sitting in deadline.

EMD E9 StreamlinersEdit

 
UP 951 at Franklin Park Railroad Days in May 2007.

UP 949, 951 and 963B are a trio of streamlined General Motors Electro-Motive Division E9 passenger locomotives built in 1955. They are used to haul the UP business cars during excursions and charter specials. While externally they are 1955 vintage locomotives, the original twin 1,200-hp 12-cylinder 567 series engines have been replaced with single EMD 16-645E 2000 hp (1.5 MW) engines and the electrical and control equipment similarly upgraded, making them more compatible with more modern locomotives.[26] The set is made of two A units and one B unit, the latter which contains an HEP engine-generator set for powering passenger cars. The two A units have been modified to eliminate the nose doors to increase safety in a collision.

UP 951 has carried its original number since its entry into service. UP 949 was built with its current number, but later was sent to the Chicago and North Western Railway and Regional Transportation Authority as CNW/RTA #511 before being reacquired by the UP.[27] UP 963B was built as UP E9B 970B and served as a heater car on Amtrak upon its formation before being reacquired by the UP. The heater car number was AMTK 669/1919.[28]

EMD DDA40X CentennialEdit

 
UP 6936, the largest operational diesel-electric locomotive in the world, as seen near Watseka, Illinois in February 2008.

UP 6936 is an EMD DDA40X "Centennial" diesel-electric locomotive, the last of its class in service. These were the largest diesel locomotives ever built and were manufactured specifically for UP.[29] In November 2000, UP 6936 collided with a dump truck at a grade crossing in Livonia, Louisiana, damaging its front end and killing an employee riding on the front of the locomotive and the driver of the truck. The unit was stored in North Little Rock, Arkansas until the damage could be repaired.[30] Another collision took place in 2007, though there were no injuries.[31]

Steam locomotivesEdit

Since 1960, the Union Pacific has operated steam locomotives on a variety of excursions. These include:[32]

  • UP 844: a 4-8-4 Northern type express passenger steam locomotive (class FEF-3), operated in excursion service since 1960. It was the last steam locomotive built for UP and has been in continuous service since its 1944 delivery. Many people know the engine as the No. 8444, since an extra '4' was added to its number in 1962 to distinguish it from a diesel numbered in the 800 series. It regained its rightful number in June 1989, after the diesel was retired and donated to the Nevada Southern Railroad Museum in Boulder City, Nevada. A mechanical failure occurred on June 24, 1999, in which the boiler tubes from the 1996 overhaul, being made of the wrong material, collapsed inside the boiler and put the steam locomotive out of commission. The UP steam crew repaired it and returned it to service on November 10, 2004. It was rebuilt again in 2015 and returned to service in 2016. In addition to being one of UP's oldest locomotives, it is the only steam locomotive to never be officially retired from a North American Class I railroad.[1]
  • UP 4014: a 4-8-8-4 Big Boy class freight steam locomotive, began operating in excursion service in 2019. It is the largest operational steam locomotive in the world. Delivered in 1941, the locomotive operated in revenue service until it made its last run on July 21, 1959 and was placed in storage until it was officially retired in 1961. Following retirement, it was donated in late 1961 to the RailGiants Train Museum in Pomona, California, where it became one of the eight Big Boys preserved around the United States. On July 23, 2013, it was announced that the UP was acquiring UP 4014 from The Southern California Chapter of The Railway and Locomotive Historical Society in Pomona, with the goal of restoring it to service. No. 4014 was moved from Pomona to the Union Pacific West Colton yard on January 26, 2014, then to Cheyenne, Wyoming from April 28, 2014 to May 8, 2014. Restoration to full operating condition was completed in May 2019, with its first excursion called "The Great Race to Ogden" taking place during the same month.[33]

One steam locomotive, which previously operated in excursion service, has now been retired:

  • UP 3985: a 4-6-6-4 Challenger class dual-service steam locomotive, operated in excursion service from 1981 to 2010 and currently retired as of January 2020. Delivered in 1943, it operated in revenue service until it was withdrawn from service in 1962. Following retirement, it was stored in the UP roundhouse until 1975, when it was moved to the employees' parking lot outside the depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming. It sat on display until 1979, when a team of employee volunteers restored it to service in 1981.[34] Following the restoration, it was the largest operating steam locomotive in the world until it lost the title to UP 4014. In 2007, it underwent repairs for service and was back up and running in 2008 to continue its run, but further mechanical problems caused it to be placed back into storage in October 2010. It was subsequently retired in January 2020 following 4014's restoration and is now stored at the roundhouse in Cheyenne.[35][36][37]

Passenger carsEdit

The Union Pacific operates a fleet of passenger cars that are often used for excursions and office car specials. Originally ordered by a variety of railroads, the oldest dates to 1912, but most were built in the mid-20th century, at the height of passenger train service. The fleet also carries a variety of important people, such as presidents, senators, generals, soldiers, artists, architects, singers and actors.[38]

Tool CarEdit

  • No. 6334 Art Lockman: built in 1962 as baggage car No. 6334. It was one of the last baggage cars purchased by Union Pacific. The car was converted to a tool car for snowplow service and renumbered No. 904304 in 1973. It was assigned to the Heritage Passenger Fleet in 1981. The car was named Art Lockman in 1992 and was renumbered UPP 6334 in 2003.[81]

MuseumEdit

  • No. 5779 Promontory: built in 1962 as postal storage car No. 5779. It is the newest car in Union Pacific's Heritage Passenger Fleet. The car was renamed the Promontory in 1993, and was converted to a museum car originally designed for the Wyoming-Idaho Centennial train. Carpeted walls permit exhibits to be changed to reflect special needs. When not in use for displays, it is often equipped as an exercise car for long trips. In celebration of Union Pacific's 150th anniversary, the Building America exhibit was installed. The state-of-the-art traveling museum told the story of building the Transcontinental railroad through interactive touch-screen monitors, large display graphics and artifacts.[82] In 2019, the Promontory was converted again into the Experience the Union Pacific car, a brand new, multi-media walk-through exhibition that provides a glimpse at the past while telling the story of modern-day railroading.[83]
