This car is sold as is. It has a paint issue that looks like some plastic stuck and left a mark. Still a decent car but needs some weathering or cleaning to make the issue unnoticeable.
Railroad Short Name: UP
A key part of Union Pacific’s public relations programs are the 48 historic passenger cars that make up the Heritage Fleet. Many were originally purchased for the famed City Streamliners, and have been carefully restored to full operating condition. Today, they’re finished in a modern version of the famed Armour Yellow scheme, and carry names of important cities, earlier trains and key people in the railroad’s long history. In service these rolling goodwill ambassadors travel system-wide and beyond, often behind UP’s restored steam and diesel locos, to attend a wide range of public and special events every year.
Two 48-seat dining cars have been named for UP’s flagship Streamliner, “The City of Los Angeles.” Both were delivered new in 1949 from American Car & Foundry. The current car, #4808, was acquired from Northern Rail Car in 1991.
