A key part of Union Pacific's public relations programs, 48 historic passenger cars, three restored steam locomotives and an A-B-A set of E9 diesels make up the famed Heritage Fleet. Many were originally purchased for the City Streamliners, and have been carefully restored and updated to full operating condition. Today, the cars and E9s are finished in a modern Armour Yellow scheme, and the cars carry names of important cities, famous trains and key people in the railroad's long history. In service, these rolling goodwill ambassadors travel system-wide and beyond, to attend a wide range of public and special events every year. Perfect for fan trip and excursion service Modern-Era UP excursion scheme Factory-Printed Car Names and UPP reporting marks Factory-installed grab irons Prototypically accurate window tinting Proto MAX(TM) metal knuckle couplers PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation. Built as a coach in 1954 by American Car and Foundry, the "Katy Flyer" provides seating for 44 passengers. The Missouri-Kansas-Texas joined the UP family in 1982, and this car was renamed in 1993 for a train that ran from St. Louis to Galveston, Texas, for 65 years. The "Katy" nickname came from the "KT" in the road's MKT reporting mark.
