Streamliner


This is Union Pacific's 1955 EMD E-9 passenger diesel 951, in an A-B-A consist with 963B and 949. They were visiting the Hearne, TX UP yard as part of the UP 150th Birthday tour, from Little Rock, AR to New Orleans, LA. Steam engine 844 was supposed to be on point of this train, but had mechanical problems (as old ladies tend to) near Mount Pleasant and didn't make it in time.  But these beauties were a superb stand-in- easy elegance on the Route of the Streamliners...
