Hi all. Sorry no pics about this, but just wanted to share a little bit of my day and give a BIG THUMBS UP to the Union Pacific. I know that allot of time we love to hate the UP. With thier big bully mind set at times and the UP models costing us more than some other road name. Before today I thought the same way. Today I stoped by the Roseville Ca. Yard and saw the UP Steam Challenger. WHAT A BEAST.... I don't know if any words can really describe the feeling that you have when you stand next to this monster. It is one thing to see it in pictures and video, but when you can touch it and look down it's length.... that is something else. As a bonus the Heritage Western Pacific was with it. I knew the challenger was there but I had no idea that the WP flagged diesel would be there. So I have to give UP a break. ya they are a pain sometimes, but who else is out there running steam? And leting you up close to the challenger plus walking through thier newest Diesel. I know it is all for publicity but I will remember this day for along time. Yes I did spend a few bucks at the gift shop car, but hey when else was I going to get on one? I think I will be buying the Kato UP 12 car Passenger set now. I was starting to get turned off of them and looking at the GW or SP, but seeing the colors in person sold it for me. It may be unpopular but,,,, THANK YOU UNION PACIFIC.
