This is how my Union Pacific day went.  I took vacation time to get the 2002 on its first trip west after the rebuilding process at the Jenks shops.  It made it to Reno and some failure caused the UP to add a GE in front for the rest of the trip.  
 
The 2002 was almost as clean as the picture I took of it and the 2001 on the official Olympic train back in 2001.    Too bad it was leading when it got to Dutch Flat today.  
   
I needed a yellow GE filter for my lens today but left it at home.  
Sorry, just could not help myself.

Dark out, and only had the cell phone, but happened to catch a road local. Kensett AR, three GP60's setting out 1+4

That happens with decals.  I noticed a lot of that of the units that have been out there on the road for several years.  
 
Roseville California had two Heritage units yesterday leading trains.

Here's the only mainline UP action I've seen thus far in southeastern PA; though I admit to not getting around the mainlines as often as I should.
 
I caught this intermodal stacker going westbound on NS' Pittsburgh Line just out of Lewistown Yard on 5/1/2010.  UP 9721 & 4538 behind NS 7717.
 

 
Enjoy.

Nice picture of the 7717 and UP companions.  
 
This is the 951, a real Heritage unit at Portola on June 8th.  
 
 

 
This is the Museum train on its way to Dunsmuir via Roseville.

two months ago, I was in Lakeland, Fl., when I saw 3 UP 'flag' units pulling a train Northbound towards Dade City & Zephyrhills ~ didn't have my camera with me, but that was something I'd never seen before, either here, or in SW Taxylvania, my home until 2006

Very nice pictures.  Good catch on the circus train and the 1996.

The NS 8343 is leading a Pipe Train at Roseville on 6/30/2010.
 
The Dash 8 is an ex Conrail diesel and Dash 8's are extremely rare today in California.

One of the few shots I have with the arch as a backdrop, mostly because you have to traverse through the ghetto to get set up.
 
The camera I carry when at work has hardly any zoom capability, so this is the best I could get. Just down the road, I witnessed a drug deal go down, and up at the TRRA, some crackhead was trying to take my camera!!!

Of course, the sun was at a good angle for westbound traffic and I get eastbounds. Oh well. UP4967 in Granite City, alongside NS and KCS right of ways.

Sad you cannot get the pictures in that area without being in danger.  Take care for sure,  Thanks for sharing them with us.  
 
i had a good weekend seeing two of the Heritage units both on Stack trains eastbound to Chicago and the Portola Feather River Express on the UP tracks..

This thread has been quiet, time to kick it into gear.
 
UP 900081, the heaviest rotary plow ever built, sporting a 12 ft blade. This beast is retired and sits at the St Louis Museum of Transportation, along with an awesome collection of equipment ranging from little Whitcomb's to a UP Big Boy and Centennial. Definitely worth checking out if in the area.
