Along with a long standing and rich heritage, The UP maintains a fleet of historic locomotives and rolling stock for use at public day events and special business trips; these “excursion trips” are an opportunity for the railroad to show actual operational railroad history to new generations of railroad fans both young and old.
Many of the UP’s older heritage cars have been re-purposed specially for these excursion trains, such as the 1962 vintage Baggage car “Promontory” which has been rebuilt into a traveling museum exhibit filled with interactive exhibits and memorabilia from the UP’s past. These cars and more join well-kept vintage Pullman and ACF-built luxury passenger cars to help preserve the historic golden era of US Passenger trains as the UP continues to operate and support railroad exhibitions in the modern era.
All cars are fully details and ready to roll with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and detailed interiors. All cars can be upgraded with 11-211/212 interior Lighting LED kits.
