        This page will highlight the various UP specials that roam the rails every year.  I currently have only caught two of them, one with the E's on the point and one showing off Up's new US Flag scheme applied to UP 4526 and UP 4527.  Hopefully, I'll be getting the new Olympic Scheme soon, as soon as the schedule is available, I'll be making plans to see it.

        The Flags were caught starting at Kelso, CA on 11-18-2001. I followed them all the way back to Vegas, where many of UP's top brass detrained for a Vegas evening. The new scheme is very nice and kudos to Union Pacific for their show of patriotism! There are 10 shots from that special with more to follow in future updates.

        The UP "E's" made a visit in the spring of 2001. UP 951 led the westbound special to the Las Vegas, NV area on April, 21, 2001, before heading on to LA. I regrettably was not aware of the visit and only by chance caught the Streamliner. Therefore I wasn't ready or able to follow the train very far south and hence, well, let's just say I am not to pleased. Must keep up on current events better. These are the best 9 pictures I snapped. Hopefully,  I'll be able to go see the Streamliner under more favorable conditions in the future.

      The weather was also not cooperating, very overcast, we even had fresh snow on the mountains surrounding the valley. So the pictures are only fair at best, but hey....
