UP 53 & 82

Scanned Photo Postcard

Scan is presented for historical/archival purposes

No copyright is claimed or intended

 

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.
