From the back of the card:


"Union Pacific Railroad


A pair of 5000 hp brutes pose for the camera at the railroad's facilities in North Platte, Nebraska. On the left, No. 53, a General Electric U50D and on the right, No. 82, a General Motors EMD DD-35A.


Union Pacific Railroad Corporation"


The post card was published by Audio-Visual Designs of Earlton, NY. No specific photographer is listed, but I am guessing it was an official UP photo. No date is given.
