    Union Pacific 987 was and EMD E6A built in 1941. It went through two other road numbers until being numbered 987 in 1948.
    In this photo print it is pulling a long passenger train assisted by two B units. B units were locomotives with no cab. The B units costs less and added to the streamlined look of the passenger trains. Union Pacific and Santa Fe were big on the B units.A
    Got it up on the wall in photo #3. Photo #4 is a similar E8A.

      Any name on the print? Or under the frame?
    7. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      Thank you very much antiquerose. I could eventually remove the print. Gave it a shot but decided to leave it. I think it is a photo.

      Not to get off topic but I love the Johnson & Johnson first aid kit.

      It didn't get much notice, perhaps I need to fill it.
