I learned about this preservation group recently. It raised my eyebrows to read they are getting the old UP Centennial that sat in South Dakota.

"We are currently finalizing the acquisition of a new facility to house and display our collection,..."

Sounds like they will do a diesel display like the one at Ogden Union Station?

The Big Jack is getting ready to leave! We visited Chamberlain this weekend to inspect the work our mechanical contractor has accomplished this week, preparing the 6925 to be placed back on active track soon, where work will continue to prepare the last DDA40X preserved for the trip East.

We are excited to announce our biggest (quite literally!) project to date, EMD DDA40X “Centennial” UP #6925.

UP 6925’s story is a long and colorful one, and thanks to our generous donors will involve seeing the largest diesel locomotive not yet in preservation moved from its long time home in Chamberlain, SD to our collection and restored in an iconic UP paint scheme.
