Vertical Union Pacific

The SD59MX is a type of rebuilt, 6-axle diesel 3,150hp locomotive rebuilt by EMD from 2009 to 2012, and the Union Pacific Railroad has rostered 25 of them. Union Pacific has a long history, with its original company having been incorporated by the Pacific Railroad Act approved by President Lincoln in 1862. Its purpose: to build railroads from the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean to preserve the Union. Joined in 1869 at Promontory Summit, Utah by the famous golden spike with the Central Pacific Railroad built eastward from San Francisco, the combined railroads became known as the First Transcontinental Railroad.
