Union Pacific Ore Car

The 2016 Ore Car in our custom series of O-gauge Ore Cars commemorating Arizona's industries and railroads will be the UNION PACIFIC Ore Car. The UNION PACIFIC (UP) is the major railroad that operates in Southern Arizona and services its industries, of which a major one is mining. UP is serviced by Southern Arizona short lines Eastern Arizona Railway, Copper Basin Railway, San Pedro & Southwestern, and the Port of Tucson.

The Union Pacific-Southern Pacific merged on September 11, 1996. The railroad, with the assistance of the short lines, provided the mines with much of their needed equipment and supplies and the removal of much of the by-products of producing the final copper ingots. Over the years the railroad was responsible for moving ore to the crushing facilities, transporting partially processed copper ore to the smelters, and finally transporting the ingots to the refineries.

To further honor Union Pacific the ore car is using their American flag decoration used on their locomotives. Using the American Flag also honors their employees as it was their employees who encouraged the use of the flag on the company locomotives.

The ore cars, produced by Lionel LLC, will be finished in UPsí multiple color scheme and striping and their unique flying American Flag centered on the car. A prototypical grey ore load is included. This classic collectable is available through pre-paid mail order reservations.
