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. Delivered new from American Car & Foundry in 1955 as 8008, this car was sold to the original Auto Train in 1972 and remained on its roster until 1981. A year later it was transferred to Kansas City Southern, where it was to be renumbered as car 19, but never saw service. UP reacquired the car in 1990 and named it for its Chicago-Portland Streamliner that ran from 1935 to 1971.
