IMG_6327 Union Pacific 44-Seat Coach #5486 City of Salina at Peninsula Jct on May 12, 2007

44-Seat Coach #5486, City of Salina, was built by American Car & Foundry in 1954. It has remained in Union Pacific service ever since. It was given the name Challenger in 1989, after Union Pacific's all-coach Challenger train that ran between Omaha, Nebraska and Los Angeles, California from May 1936 to April 1971, and was renamed City of Salina in 1992, after Union Pacific's first streamliner and America's first high-speed, internal-combustion passenger train, which operated between Kansas City, Topeka and Salina, Kansas from January 1935 to December 1941.
