Union Pacific Circ 7 City Codes

Used as part of train symbols

This page was last updated on November 10, 2002. (will not be updated)

Overview

The following comes from Chris Faulk, via an email to the UP Modelers Yahoo discussion group on November 2, 2002:

Over the past 25+ years, the UP has used three different systems to identify trains with symbols. The first system was very liberal in assigning symbols to trains. Usually, the symbol was just an abbreviation of a train's name or it's origin and destination, such as SUPRV (Supervan), OME (Overland Mail East), or NPP(North Platte to Pocatello). Just by looking at the symbol, you couldn't tell sometimes what type of train it is, like with the NPP.

Then, around 1986-1987, the UP came up with a more rigid system in assigning symbols to trains. This is when they finally denote trains by the origin and destination. The symbol would start off with the first two letters denoting the code for the origin, then the third and fourth letters denoting the code for the destination. Usually, a four-letter symbol was just a manifest, such as the OANP, for the Oakland to North Platte manifest. Other trains, like TOFC and auto trains contained a fifth letter at the end of the symbol, like Z for TOFC, or V or autos, such as with OANPZ, for Oakland to North Platte TOFC. The doublestack train symbols were a little different. Where the manifest and TOFC trains were scheduled for seven days a week, most doublestack trains were only scheduled once a week. In that case, they carried a number at the end of the symbol denoting the day of the week the train originated. With OAAP5 (I think you typed in extra A in the symbol above), it was a doublestack train that originated in Oakland on Thursday (5) and was destined for American President Lines in Chicago. The K-Line doublestack trains would have a KL symbol, the Maersk trains would have a MK symbol, etc. The exceptions to this rule were bulk unit trains, such as coal (C), grain (G), and other bulk commodity (O), where the bulk type code was in front of the O-D codes, such as GLCBKA (loaded grain, Council Bluffs to Kalama,WA), CEBJK (coal, Eagle Butte Mine, WY to Jeffrey, KS) or OGRBA (loaded soad ash, Green River, WY to Barnes, OR).

About 10 years later, in 1996-1997, the UP changed their train symbol system again by simply moving the train type abbreviation to the front, followed by the Origin/Destination two-letter codes. This didn't change the symbols for the bulk unit trains, as they already followed this system. So, OANP would have changed to MOANP (M for manifest).
