Photos of the 1936 Paint Scheme on the M-10000. By 1936 the Original M-10000 train (nicknamed "Little-Zip" by some, the Tin worm" by others) has been joined by additional trainsets built by Pullman for the Union Pacific. The trains had proved to be very popular with the public and the later trains all had more cars than the 3-car M-10000, so they could handle larger passenger loads per run. So in 1936 the "Little-Zip" was refurbished, given a new paint scheme and assigned to the run between Omaha and Salina Kansas, which did not have the heavier passenger volumes of its cross country cousins. But this new paint scheme also sported the new "Streamliner" script Logo that was destined to be used by the Union Pacific for the next 35 years or so, until Amtrak took over all the Union Pacific Routes. This "Steamliner" logo was also used on thousands of U.P. Freight cars to advertise it passenger service. Now, Con-Cor brings you this famous paint scheme which has never before been available to HO modelers.Once again quantities are limited at this time, so don't miss out.

History of the Union Pacific M-10000. The Union Pacific actually won the race to have a "modern streamlined high speed train" in service first and had their M-10000 streamliner in service in early 1934 months before the Burlington's Pioneer Zephyr. But the Burlington won the public relations battle and got more publicity for the Pioneer Zephyr which is probably remembered better than the M-10000. The M-10000 also toured much of the USA and the interior was shown to over 1 million people, and each and every one of those million plus people got a fancy sourvenier Aluminum coin made of the same material as the M-10000 body. The Original M-10000 was scrapped in early 1942. It is a bit vauge why it was scrapped so early, as other versions such as the M-10001 and M-10002 continued in service. The offical reason given was that the Aluminum in the body was needed for the "war effort". But at least one National Museum had expressed interest in preserving the train for Historical purposes.
