UP Heritage Diesel seen in Truckee

In 2005, the Union Pacific released diesel locomotives with paint other than the traditional UP "Armour Yellow" scheme. The locomotives celebrate the various railroad lines that have merged into the Union Pacific. The first two locos released were Missouri Pacific and Western Pacific. Recently, ralifan and TDRS member Deane Dvoracek caught some pictures of the Western Pacific heritage diesel parked near the crossing in downtown Truckee.
