    This is the best I've found as a "collection" of pictures.

    Ugh, it's a collection of links to pages with one link to the pictures of one engine. Boooo. Has anyone else photo'd the heritage locos? It would be nice to have a single page with all the engines pictured.

    oh, okay...for some reason I was thinking the 4449 or something exciting like that, not the UP "Yeah, yeah, we're actually using the logos, pay us our licensing fees" heritage locos. Novelty value, I suppose, is nice...

    eightyeightfan1 Now I'm AMP'd

    Thats because they lost their lawsuit in court. They were trying to get money from manufactures selling models of the SP, WP,C&NW.ect..ect..Court said, "No Way...You guys(UP) discontinued those logos from the railroads you bought, means you lost the rights to them". Unfortunatly for UP, they can only collect on models of the locos that they paint the logos on(The SD-70's).
    Sorry guys...Nice try.....
