UP Olympic Torch Relay

Union Pacific locomotives #2001 - #2002 bring the Olympic Torch Relay Train into Santa Barbara on January 16, 2002 to promote the upcoming winter games in Salt Lake City, UT.
Wow that is a great catch. UP had the power units in my city for a while but they were hauling auto racks. Its nice to see how it all went together.
 
Thanks Zephyr for your comments. It was a very impressive train when assembled, especially the head end with power units #2001/#2002.
