    I saw the show! It got over a lil bit ago! I wish someone could make The Zip! ( Union Pacific zephyr )



    Union Pacific railorad is the the best railroad in the world!
    if we want it to stay like that we better pay tribute!
    Union Pacifc Railroad has ben around longer then any other MAJOR railroad. UP is the best MIX of all railroad stuff.

    Hi,

    Don't reply to bcdef. He is supposed not to be here. He has left the building. Only his gost is still here. And this gost always thinks it is right. So it is of no use to reply to him.

    Taped the show and finally watched it today. It is a great show that any train fan should see. Looking forward to someone do a Zephyr and if possible a UP "lil zip"

    BTW, isn't someone doing the California Zephyr?
