U.P. Museum seeks specialty license plate
Erin Golden WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER said:As Union Pacific marks its 150th anniversary, the railroad's museum is looking to make a little history itself.
If the Friends of the Union Pacific Railroad Museum can get 500 people — each paying an extra $70 fee — on board, it will become the second organization in Nebraska to get its own license plate since a new specialty plate law went into effect last year.
The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles already has approved the design submitted by the nonprofit group, which supports the Council Bluffs museum. Created by a U.P. graphic designer, the plates feature a yellow U.P. engine pulling a train along an agricultural landscape, with a hazy outline of the Omaha skyline in the background. White lettering at the bottom reads: Union Pacific Railroad Museum.
