UP 140 "Stanford" Sep 1996 Feb 1997
UPP 140 "Stanford" Feb 1997  

General Notes:

a. UPP 140 "Stanford" was built in 1927 by Pullman and originally named the Sunset, car No. 140 was the second of three cars to carry the name. The car, carrying the Southern Pacific premier name, therefore, was the premier car in the fleet, and was assigned to the president. In 1955, the car was renamed in honor of Leland Stanford, first president of the Southern Pacific, and allowing the name Sunset to be given to car No. 150. The Stanford has undergone several mechanical upgrades, including new 6-wheel disc brake trucks and conversion to 480 volt head end power, thus allowing it to operate on Amtrak trains, the interior remains much as it was when built, with Honduras mahogany interior. The Stanford was the command car on site in the Tehachapis during the months-long rebuilding effort after the railroad was severed by the devastating earthquake in 1952. (from uprr.com)
b. One of three business cars ordered in the 1920's from Pullman which were the peak of the car builders art at the time. The other two cars were SP 99 "Houston" and SP 100 "Airslie". (Espee.Railfan.net; SP Business Cars, by Bob Pecotich)

General Notes:

a. Built as Southern Pacific Business Car 150 "Sunset" (2nd); to UP by merger in 1996; to UP Business Car UPP 150 "Sunset" in 1997
b. The Sunset was built in 1955 and was the last business car made by Pullman-Standard. The present Sunset is the third Southern Pacific car to carry the name and is No. 150. Ordered by Southern Pacific President D. J. Russell for his personal use during the height of the "light weight" era, at 90 feet, the Sunset is the longest, and one of the heaviest business cars built. It was state-of-the-art in car design, all stainless steel construction; lowered, luminous ceilings; and bright lighting throughout highlighting modern furnishings. In keeping with the period, the interior was finished in Formica, rather than wood. This makes the Sunset a valuable asset on operating trips, and other heavy-duty assignments where a wood interior may be damaged. The Sunset has undergone periodic upgrading of its mechanical systems over the years, and is able to operate on Amtrak trains from 480 volt head end power, or its two on-board diesel generators. Recently the interior has been redecorated to include new English wool Axminster carpet and new window treatments. Upholstery throughout the car was redone to complement the new color schemes. The dining room furniture was also replaced. President Dwight Eisenhower accepted the 1956 nomination for his second term from the platform of the Sunset, which was backed into the Cow Palace in San Francisco, California, for the occasion. First Lady Mamie Eisenhower frequently traveled on the car, which was at her disposal. The last rail trip she took was on the Sunset. (from uprr.com)
c. Stainless steel finish until late 1997 or early 1998; still innatural stainless steel in July 1997 (but with UPP 150 number); repainted to UP yellow and gray by August 1998. (information from Evan Werkema)

UPP 209 "Howard Fogg" 1997  

General Notes:

a. UPP 209 "Howard Fogg" was was renumbered from Boiler Dormitory 304 in July 1987; assigned to steam program as UPP 209 in July 1987; remodeled to Power Car 209 in 1992, with steam generator and Head End Power (HEP); named "Howard Fogg" in 1997
b. UPP 209 named "Howard Fogg" in memory of the renowned artist Howard Fogg who painted hundreds of paintings of Union Pacific subjects. Mr. Fogg said on several occasions that he never tired of completing paintings of Union Pacific's famous Big Boy steam locomotives.
c. Internal Changes - Since being assigned to the steam program, UPP 209's configuration has been extensively modified, both mechanically and its interior space. In 1993, the 5,000 gallon water tank used for the steam generator was removed, and a John Deere diesel-powered generator set (removed from Inspection Car "Idaho") was installed in its place. Fuel and water capacity was installed to allow the car to power itself and six or seven others. The steam generator is used on a regular basis to furnish steam to speed up a re-firing of the steam locomotives. In 1997, an additional Caterpillar diesel generator set was installed, and during 2004-2005, additional water and fuel capacity was installed. The car has two washer and dryer sets for crew members, and the additional water and fuel capacity will improve their usability. In 1993, two of the original five dormitory rooms were combined to serve as storage space for the adjacent concession car. This space has just recently been converted to a crew break area, and includes table and chairs, sink, coffee maker, microwave oven, lockers, and a refrigerator. The lost storage space will be made up by moving the concession items to another car. The other three dormitory rooms were stripped of their original six bunks, and one was converted to an office, which also contains a bed. The other two were changed to contain only a single bed in each room. The original steward's room, adjacent to the original baggage section, has been converted for use as a crew luggage area.
d. External Changes - Changed from one 2-axle truck and one 3-axle truck, to two 3-axle trucks in late 2009 (after September 2009, as seen in this dated photo; before April 2010, as seen in this photo)
