    Hi,

    Can someone point me to a site, or simply tell me, what cars a UP passenger train consists of? I'm looking to model something like the Desert Express.

    Thanks

    Hello Evan. As far as I know, the consist would be an RPO car, a baggage express car, 3 to 4 bedroom sleeper cars, a dining car, a dome lounge car or two and an end observation/lounge. I have an old photo of a UP passenger train taking on fuel somewhere in the central US, and these are the cars that it appears to be pulling.

    Hope this helps.
