My friend Ken Fritzgerald is UPs corporate photographer, he is busy today documenting this historic event. The UP boardroom will have some new material next to his current photographs for all stockholders to enjoy. He's present at all their special movements and has a lot of trains with a vast array of scenery.

If you have any models of the 4141 laying around, judging by the bids, today would be the day to list them on eBay
