O/T - U.P. Challenger - get to ride this time

The Union Pacific Challenger is on its way to Houston again. Saturday it will be traveling from Van Buren to North Little Rock, Arkansas. This time I have the good fortune to be able to ride it along that stretch. This is going to be a great holiday weekend.

Re: O/T - U.P. Challenger - get to ride this time

Kewl....... Sounds like a great weekend.

Some of us are likely going to clean out the gutters and do other things around the house. Live in Indy and don't even have tickets to the race.

But we can't all have fun all the time. Can we??

Enjoy the ride. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Will make sure to get plenty of pics so you can share them on here. I would love to see them. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Oh, and while I should give you congratulations for getting to ride it.........I think I now hate you. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: O/T - U.P. Challenger - get to ride this time

Bah, its more fun to chase them! Actually, I love riding along. The last one I rode behind was the 1218 (that should give you some idea how long its been).

Have a blast and post some pics so these guys can see what a real engine is! 4-6-6-4!
