UP CHALLENGER 3985 SUPER BOWL
some photos I made of a portion of Union Pacific's 3985 special Super
Bowl steam trip in Missouri, Arkansas and Texas from Thursday, January
22 through Saturday, January 24, 2004. Also part of the return trip from
February 3 through February 6 in Texas and Arkansas. I'll give each
day a separate entry and webpage and will list each of those pages here
on the main site. Although I'll try to post each day, I may not be
able to get each day's photos posted for a day or two afterwards. For other
