Here's a copy of the press release from UP regarding the special photo op using all the UP Heritage locomotives in Salt Lake City on June 30 (I left off the press contact phone numbers by request)....

Union Pacific Gathers Heritage Locomotives for “Class Photo”

What: Union Pacific has created six specially painted locomotives over the last two years to commemorate the heritage of railroads that have become part of the Union Pacific system. These “Heritage” locomotives, representing the Missouri Pacific, Western Pacific, Katy, Denver & Rio Grande, Chicago & North Western and Southern Pacific railroads, will be assembled as a group for the first time at Union Pacific’s intermodal facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Who: Salt Lake City-area media outlets are invited to attend this unusual gathering of locomotives for the first of its kind “class photo.” Media outlets should contact James Barnes at the above telephone number to pre-register. Non-media photographers who wish to gain access to the intermodal facility must submit their name and date-of-birth (for security purposes) via e-mail to BrendaMainwaring@up.com by June 27. If necessary, Union Pacific may limit the number of passes granted to non-media photographers.

When: Saturday, June 30, 2007, Noon until 2 p.m. MDT.

Where: 1045 South 5500 West
Salt Lake City, Utah

Directions:
• I-80 to exit 113 – 5600 West
• South two miles
• Cross railroad tracks
• Left on 1100 South – first paved road after crossing railroad tracks
• First left into facility

Why: Union Pacific created its specially painted heritage locomotive series in honor of the thousands of men and women who help deliver the materials that fuel the nations’ economy. Through the years, a series of mergers helped Union Pacific create the largest railroad in North America. Incorporating elements of these railroads’ past, the series focuses on the immeasurable contributions of the people and the railroads that have made Union Pacific what it is today.


(SLC is gonna drown in all that foam!!!!) :-)
