Cool! More info about these three here: http://www.up.com/aboutup/special_train ... /index.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Also, Mr. Niedermeyer had no way of knowing, but these particular E9s have a single 16-645 each (only 48 cylinders!) rather than twin 12-567s, because of a UP rebuild. That said, they are beautiful.


Moderator's Note: Two notes for our forum members.

1. Never go into a locomotive without permission, like Mr. Niedermeyer did; and,
2. since this article deals almost exclusively with EMD's streamlined locomotives, I'm moving it to the EMD forum.
