The 2000 Republican National Convention was held in Philadelphia in August of 2000 and Union Pacific brought most of its office car fleet to the city for the event.
 
For the trip over CSX trackage, CSX insisted on a pair of B36-7's up front: CSX 5883 and 5903.
Behind the utilitarian GE's were UP's pristine E9A's 949 and 951.
The problem for a train with FIVE observation cars is that there can be only one on the very end.
The rest wound up buried in the consist ...
a pair of them back to back.
The lucky winner on this train was UP 115 "Selma".
