Union Pacific Train-page 2

Here are the rest of the photos from the train at Philadelphia
during the Republican Convention.  Fortunately, I was there before
the convention started, so things were not so hectic.

Here is a side shot of Union Pacific E9 949.  Wow, this looks great.  I have never been a huge fan of the E series locomotives, but seeing these two gave me a new appreciation for these locomotives.
E9 sitting proudly for all to see.  I really love the color scheme on some of UP's E and F series locomotives with the green on the "hood".
Another shot, this one a frontal of 951.

On a personal note, I loved the two-tone grey color scheme of UP's Overland Cars.

My wife and son getting a closer look of E9 949.  Just to the left of the ladder (at the bottom) is an EMD label, stating the year the locomotive was made, which was 1955.
