Review of Union Pacific Double Feature 2-DVD Set Diesels on the Union Pacific

 4 of 5 (5)
Diesels on the Union Pacific

You are on the Union Pacific mainline west of Cheyenne, Wyoming . It's the 1980's and the venerable 6,600 horsepower DDA40X Centennial 6900's have been reactivated for one last stand. Watch this example of Union Pacific's quest for big power as it climbs Sherman Hill and roars westward past Tie Siding and on to Colores, Wyoming. The EMD SD40-2 and the GE U30C, both rated at 3,000 horsepower, are also seen in abundance. Get close to the action as we tour the Cheyenne Yards. Then from the Yardmaster's Tower we get an overall view as trains arrive and depart this busy division point.
