|January 15, 2019: Marc Fournier contributed the first photos for our 2019 album.|
Marc on the PROWL
As most know, the UP has painted several diesels into "heritage" paint schemes and a few more to honor organizations. The latest paint scheme "Spirit of Union pacific" honors the military services (UP 1943).
Several years ago, UP unveiled a unit painted to resemble Air Force ONE and lettered for former President George H. W. Bush (UP 4141). This unit has seen little service over the years, being "held" in reserve to lead the Presidential funeral train. Since completion of honors & services for the late President, UP 4141 & UP 1943 have been placed on display at a few UP system stops. This week, both units were at West Colton, CA.
Marc visited UP West Colton, followed by a quick stop at the Pepper Ave Bridge and ending at the San Bernardino MetroLink Station. Marc & GGG
