Quite a different assignment from the one it had a few weeks ago when it led the California Zephyr! Here, UP 1989 is sitting on a train used for training of local law enforcement officials. That second car on the train is used for transporting radioactive waste by rail. The "nuclear" car has a buffer car on either side of it, and a Department of Defense caboose (actually used as a part of the Department of Energy) sits on the end.
