No other railroad in this country has retained its historical equipment and honored its past like Union Pacific. Its fleet preservation speaks to the high value Union Pacific places on its heritage and its role in America’s history.
Each historic passenger car is unique and chronicles a different chapter of Union Pacific’s past. For more than a century, these cars transported iconic individuals – including presidents, senators, generals, soldiers, artists, architects, singers and actors – who influenced and transformed America.
Share the adventure with us August 13, 2017, as we trace the beginning of Union Pacific’s construction of the transcontinental railroad to Columbus, Nebraska, on heritage equipment pulled by historic E-9 streamliner locomotives. This is a rare opportunity to travel on the Union Pacific main line and relive the heyday of premium Union Pacific passenger service.
