Restoration Projects
Union Pacific M-35

The UP M-35 is undergoing a major restoration. Over the past several years, most of the work on the M-35 has been towards the mechanical end. The engine and electrical gear has been inspected and many items repaired or replaced. The air brakes have been rebuilt. Recently, attention has been directed towards the body and cosmetics. The roof has had its share of leaks and is being compeletly replaced. The interior restoration will soon follow.
