Thank you for your interest
in locomotive No. 6915. This unit is the largest and most powerful diesel
locomotive ever built. It was retired in 1984 and donated to the Southern
California Chapter of the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society in 1986.
Engines in this class were custom built for the Union Pacific Railroad and were
called Centennials in honor of the 100th anniversary of the driving of the Golden
Spike at Promontory, Utah in 1869.

Sometime during the first two weeks of April, someone climbed on top of the UP 6915 (Centennial) and STOLE the "Leslie 5 Chime Horn". If anyone knows any information about the horn, please contact any of our members at (909) 623-0190. Your help in finding and returning this piece of history is greatly appreciated.
