Review of Union Pacific Superpower DVD

 3 of 5 (2)
It's the dawn of a new era for the Union Pacific Railroad.

With the merger of the Union Pacific and the Chicago & North Western and then the Southern Pacific, including the Rio Grande, the Union Pacific has become a new Super Railroad.

This new railroad needs new Superpower, and General Electric is happy to oblige with the powerful AC60CW, which generates an incredible 6000 horsepower. This new engine joins other super engines such as the 4,380 horsepower GE C44AC, the 4,000 horsepower EMD SD70M, and other powerful engines. The old Wings nose herald has returned and is seen on many units.

A variety of power hauls long heavy freights over the Union Pacific's busy Nebraska mainline, across the green countryside and through picturesque tank towns with their towering grain elevators. This fast-paced journey begins at Lodge Pole, Nebraska, and works eastward to North Platte and beyond. Videotaped in May, 2001.
