    Well, I'm a dyed in the wool Espee lover (Sacramento was THE SP town - I was a kid during the Kodachrome period), but I gotta give it to UP for retaining former-SP assets, and the UP crewman back in '99 who risked his job and let me go around and get close-up detail photos of two waiting SD40T-2s and climb aboard a GP38-2 at MP 95. That was a good day, and I cherish those photos he let me take.

    I had more influence from the Peninsula commuter trains, Southern Pacific GP-9s, SD-9s, SD tunnel units, even the Spirity of '76 and Cotton Belt units. They all were pulling the Pullman bi-levels and Harriman coaches. All the freight trains up and down the Peninsula, too. Then I got to knowing more about Union Pacific, and primarily the Western Pacific. Even had some Sacramento Northern and Rio Grande stuff. I will update this when I have more time. I just discovered all these groups.

    I live in the NW part of Arkansas, so I'm pretty much surrounded by UP. When I was 3, I lived in a small community with a rail crossing on the edge of the main part of the community, and I would watch the trains passing by quiet often. Since the locomotives were that classic UP yellow, yellow became my favorite color. Anywho, one night my dad takes me down to the crossing and a train was sitting there, for what reason I don't know. I was excited! We got out of the car to look, and one of the engineers envites us to come in. The best experience of my early childhood. I got to sit in both seats and blew the horn. I still remember my excitement when I told my mom what happened.

    My earliest memory of UP is A big boy. I was 7 years old and my parents had taken me to the steam town railroad museum. when we pulled up in our car, and I saw that monster parked out front...

    It was a great feeling. that engine was huge compared to me... I was about half the size of one of it's 16 drivers.
