Leading Olympic Torch Relay Train

Dallas, Texas Dec. 12, 2001

We traveled to Dallas from Houston to see Olympic Torch Relay Train carrying Olympic Flame. Awesome train by Union Pacific Railroad with 2 special painted SD70M locomotives UP#2001 & UP#2002 with 18 passenger cars and special Caldron car on rear with flame.

We ate at West End Market Place and finished just in time to see Torch Relay go thru Downtown Dallas. Then saw ceremony where Dallas Policeman lit flame on train to go to Texarkana that night. Awesome spectacle!!
