General Notes:

a. UPP 2066 was built in 1960 as Postal Storage 5816; to UP 903677 Roadway Tool Car in 1972; to Power Car UPP 2066 in 2004
b. This is new power car has roughly twice the power capability of our existing power cars. It should be able to handle a 17 or 18-car passenger train by itself. Currently when we run very large passenger specials, we have to use two power cars, one on the head-end and another mid-train. We'll be able to keep this one on the head-end of the train and out of the way of the guests. It was built from a former baggage car. The heightened roof houses locomotive cooling fans to dissipate the enormous amount of heat generated. The car is 16' 1" high, slightly higher than a dome car. It should be ready for service later this year. (John Bromley, Trainorders.com, May 3, 2004)

Each of the four staterooms is reported as having a sitting room with an attached bedroom, with an entrance from hallway into the sitting room, and a shower and rest room between the sitting room and bedroom (with fire exit to hallway from bedroom). This layout is said to be similar to an executive suite in a hotel.

d. Named "Pacific Limited" to commemorate an all-Pullman electric-lighted train between Chicago and Ogden, Utah, where it split and separate sections went on to either Los Angeles and San Francisco, California. The train operated over Union Pacific between Omaha and Ogden, and between Ogden and Los Angeles. The train ran from 1913 to 1947, when it was combined with the Portland Rose, another all-Pullman train which had added coach service when the streamliners went to daily service.

The sequence of UP 7011 to Auto Train 707, and UP 7012 to Auto Train 708 was first reported in Randall's 1973-1974 Railway Passenger Car Annual, published in 1974. This roster assumes that at some point in one of its many rebuilds, someone discovered evidence that Auto Train 708 was actually ex UP 7011, rather than ex UP 7012. (Read Phil Dohmen's commentary about the number confusion)
c. Named "Missouri River Eagle" to commemorate the Missouri Pacific train that ran between St. Louis and Omaha, from March 1940 to April 1971 (the Kansas City to Omaha segment was discontinued in September 1965). The Missouri River Eagle was the first and last diesel streamliner on the Missouri Pacific.
