[Union Pacific internal letter]
January 29, 1953
It has been decided that C&NW power units assigned to Trains 101-102 will not be operated west of Omaha and Union Pacific power assigned to Trains 101-102, 103-104 and 105-106 will not be operated east of Omaha.
[The change was to take place progressively from February 4th through February 7th, allowing all C&NW locomotives to be moved eastward to Omaha, and all UP locomotives to be moved westward to Omaha.]
This arrangement will be progressively affected as follows:
|February 4, 1953||February 5, 1953||February 6, 1953||February 7, 1953|
Power assignment for Trains 111-112 will not be changed and UP and C&NW units on these trains will continue to run through between Denver and Chicago.
To avoid excessive layover at Oamha, a pool of 10 sets of diesel power should be provided to handle Trains 101-102, 5-6 and 23-24 between Omaha and Ogden and 105-106 between Omaha and Portland as follows:
Omaha-Ogden, Train 101; Ogden-Omaha, Train 6
Omaha-Portland, Train 105; Portland-Omaha, Train 106
Omaha-Ogden, Train 23; Ogden-Omaha, Train 102
Omaha-Ogden, Train 5; Ogden-Omaha, Train 24
Train 24's units will be returned on Train 101 and power turned for other trains as above outlined.
