Founded in 1862, the Union Pacific Railroad originally carried passengers and freight until 1971 when it became a freight-only carrier operating 8,600 locomotives over 32,000 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago and New Orleans. No other railroad in this country has retained its historical equipment and honored its history like Union Pacific. The preservation of its fleet speaks to the high value Union Pacific places on its heritage and its role in America's history.
