Product Information

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
  • UP excursion schemes
  • Factory-printed car names, numbers and full-color graphics as appropriate
  • Factory-installed grab irons
  • Prototypically accurate window tinting
  • Correct 36" turned metal RP-25 wheels
  • 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 in 1962 for mail storage service as #5752, the car was reassigned to the maintenance fleet as a tool car in 1970 and renumbered 904277. Retired in 1997, the car was held for parts until 2018, when it was refurbished for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the golden spike, named "Promontory" (the second car to carry the name), restored to its original #5752 and finished with special "Experience the Union Pacific" lettering in blue.
