UP SD40-2 #3593 "Desert Victory"


     Specially painted by Union Pacific to honor its employee reservists, this small gallery of pictures were taken over the span of two weekends during the 1991 Oregon State Fair. An Operation Lifesaver exhibit featured an impressive lineup of locomotives and rolling stock. In addition to the "Desert Victory," some of the attractions were BN's "Pacific Pride" GP38 #2075, SP GP60 #9753, UP C41-8W #9392, and the SP "Daylight" 4-8-4 #4449 (which was later replaced by the SP&S 4-8-4 #700).
