Photos from Union Pacific Railroad's
Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Torch Relay Train
at Santa Barbara, CA; Jan. 16, 2002
http://www.trainweb.com/fotosort/trains/olympic_torch_2002/index.html

The Union Pacific Railroad has been carrying the eternal Olympic flame across America as part of the 2002 Olympic Torch Relay. The flame is to reach the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah in February, and Union Pacific will deliver the flame. Whenever the flame has not been traveling by foot or car, it has been traveling on a special caulderon car at the rear of the Union Pacific train. The train has two specially painted locomotives and the passenger cars are shrink-wrapped with Olympic graphics.

On January 16, 2002, the train was in Santa Barbara, at the Amtrak station, to receive the flame and continue it up the California coast. The entire TrainWeb staff, Steve Grande, Ray Burns, Matt Melzer, and Shivam Surve, took the Amtrak Coast Starlight and Pacific Surfliner to Santa Barbara for the day to view the special train. A ceremony took place on State Street to welcome the flame to Santa Barbara and deliver it to the train. Unfortunately, we had to leave before the flame reached the train, as it was running late and our train home was not! However, the photos of the Union Pacific train speak for themselves.
