A little bump to the thread. Would appear still 41 examples left in the scheme still so going strong for now by all means :-)

Palm Springs is around 4 hours from Vegas, but pretty close to Cajon and Los Angeles which may have cheaper flights.
If you look at PTTs in the late 50s'/60s (to the end of passenger service), UP used the "Overland Route" as its nickname!

Thanks. UP has apparently decided that all engines in predecessor paint are to be repainted as a final achievement of the current VP of Mechanical before he retires.

Get them while you can.

Just 21 left now; a little digging and checking of video/photos of the last month show just these below of the type to still be flying the Southern Pacific flag...

Wow. It looks like none may see March unpainted. Thanks for the (depressing) updates.

Still 21 flying the SP flag. So probably they’ll make the spring. After that is anyone’s guess.
