    Default "Meet Uncle Pete" video (1964)

    Many of you have probably seen this but I just came across this video created by UP back in the early 1960s... nice little intro to railroads and UP... Footage of many of the more interesting locos from the early days of diesel -- GTEL, U50, DD40, SD24, etc...

    Also turns out I never knew that "Uncle Pete" was a nickname for UP...

    I've heard UP called Uncle Pete before, but I never knew it was an official nickname

    I had a chance to watch this over lunch and there is some really good operations info about various types of freight cars -- very informative (for me -- since I am naive about prototypical railroading).
