Additional Information:

A key part of Union Pacific’s public relations programs, 48 historic passenger cars and three E9 diesels make up part of the famed Heritage Fleet. Many were originally purchased for the City Streamliners, and have been carefully restored and updated to full operating condition. Today, they’re 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, behind UP’s restored steam and diesel locos, to attend a wide range of public and special events every year.

  • Early or Late lettering schemes as noted in two versions
    • Factory-printed name with number decal for pre-1987 cars
    • Factory-printed name and UPP number for post-1994 cars
  • Factory-installed LED interior lighting
  • Factory-installed grab irons
  • Prototypically accurate window tinting and gaskets as appropriate
  • Modeler-installed extended drawbars for 22″ radius curves included
  • Correct 36″ RP-25 metal wheelsets
  • 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.
 
One of five new 44-seat coaches delivered from American Car & Foundry in 1954, car #5483 was named “Texas Eagle” to honor the Missouri Pacific train that ran between St. Louis and large Texas cities from August 1948 to April 1971.
