My family's involvement in Union Pacific

The first photo is my grandfather and I on a trip on one of the last runs of the "City of Portland" Passenger train operated by Union Pacific. Date: May, 1971

In this photo, the employees of the Union Pacific Office in Denver pose on the front of UP844, then numbered 8444. My uncle, Lloyd Lemons, is at the top right. This was probably taken around 1980. Lloyd Lemons ended his career with UP in summer of 1987. At his retirement party, a manager from UP gave Lloyd a brass replica of 844.
