Pentrex dives into the somewhat boring modern locomotive railroad scene. They seek out those specially painted Heritage units.
These engines were schemes to commererate previous paint jobs or general railroads, as aqquisitions.
Let’s checkout some show highlights.
As I have little interest in modern railroading. Only what is shown within this show, shall be reviewed. I really do not care what is missing.
A detailed Chapter Menu highlights the individual UP units, plus a Norfolk Southern general listing.
Dependable Pentrex quality is assured.
Narrative includes some history on predecessor roads.
Notable locations include: Cajon Pass, Beaumont Hill, Colton, Yuma and more..
Amtrak has several units, that cover various phases. This scene from Chicago has a Phase One paint scheme.
UP 1982 is a tribute to Missouri Pacific.
UP 1983 is Western Pacific. The WP is a long chapter.Numbering is approximate merger years, more or less.
UP 1988. The red Katy is a sharp looking one!
UP 1989 wears the Rio Grande.
UP 1995 in Chicago and Northwestern.
UP 1996 is heavily featured.
Why not? The Southern Pacific. One of the most attractive of the group.
Norfolk Southern visitors…
Savanna and Atlanta, leads on an inbound and outbound move. Many leading Heritage units get paced.
A Virginian is buried in a lash-up.
Pennsylvania is a vintage, eye popper! Nicely paced…
The double stacks are what these newer locomotives are usually hauling. Endless long trains of container traffic. Yawn.
Heritage Unit Roundup. Pick your favorites. Argue what’s missing. Seems that Pentrex could have included more Eastern. Fine show of these modern diesels. Not my wheelhouse. Perhaps it is yours.
