I am suprised no one mentioned this yet...

The UP Centennial 6936 is heading West witht he UP1989 DRGW Heritage unit on a Passenger Special. SCBCY-06

Both Units are facing forward. I heard its eventually heading to Saltlake City before heading back to Omaha. Scheuled return to Omaha on 7/16.

Departed Council Bluffs today at 07:16 and is near Missouri Valley now.

here is a quick shot of it this morning near Honey Creek, IA



Nice shot! But what is up with UP putting modern crap behind everything now? First it was the E's, then 844, and now this? It's a little annoying.

Great photo, Brad! Shows her length --
what an amazing locomotive! I am very
glad she still runs. About time to see her
powering a UP special!
