Specific Item Information: Originally built as Union Pacific 800-class steam tenders in 1937, UPP 809 and UPP 814 have both undergone significant changes over the years. They were used as fuel tenders for the GTEL 8500 Horsepower “Big Blow” Turbines in the 1960s, fuel storage tanks in the 1970s and finally entered water service for the Heritage steam fleet in 1989.

UPP 809 "Jim Adams" and UPP 814 "Joe Jordan" have been extensively modified since their Turbine Fuel Tender careers. Changes include removing the fuel oil heaters and squaring-off the top corners to increase their water carrying capacity. UPP 814 was rebuilt in July 2006 followed by UPP 809 in August 2008. Both tenders regularly operate together and are pulled behind FEF-3 #844, Challenger #3985 and eventually Big Boy #4014.

Body Style Information: ScaleTrains.com Water and Fuel Tenders were announced in 2017 with a Spring 2018 estimated delivery date.

Road/Company Information:
The Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) is a freight hauling railroad that operates 8,500 locomotives over 32,100 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Union Pacific Railroad network is the largest in the United States and employs 42,600 people. It is also one of the world's largest transportation companies.

Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP); both are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the years Union Pacific Corporation has grown by acquiring other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago & North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Denver & Rio Grande Western).

Union Pacific Corporation's main competitor is the BNSF Railway, the nation's second largest freight railroad, which also primarily services the Continental U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Together, the two railroads have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the U.S.
