WalthersProto HO Scale: 85' ACF 48-Seat Diner - Union Pacific 'City of Denver'
Built as a Lunch Counter Cafe Lounge in 1959, this car returned to the Union Pacific in 1989, and was named for the City of Denver, a train jointly operated by the CNW and UP between Chicago and Denver from 1936 to 1971.
A key part of Union Pacific's public relations programs, 48 historic passenger cars, three restored steam locomotives and an A-B-A set of E9 diesels make up the famed Heritage Fleet. Many were originally purchased for the City Streamliners, and have been carefully restored and updated to full operating condition. Today, the cars and E9s are finished in a modern Armour Yellow scheme, and the cars carry names of important cities, famous trains and key people in the railroad's long history. In service, these rolling goodwill ambassadors travel system-wide and beyond, to attend a wide range of public and special events every year.
