UP to unveil custom-painted locomotive honoring President Bush



Union Pacific Railroad recently unveiled the Heritage Series of locomotives featuring paint schemes designed to honor workers from predecessor railroads of the past. Now, the Class I plans to take the wraps off a custom-painted locomotive to commemorate the U.S. president of the present.

On Oct. 18, UP will unveil a locomotive honoring President George W. Bush at an invitation-only ceremony at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. After the ceremony, President Bush will host a ticketed forum entitled "Railroads: Building America" that will include UP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dick Davidson.
