Union Pacific Pink Ribbon Locomotive
The Union Pacific No. 7400 Pink Ribbon Locomotive celebrates the company’s support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, and the many lives – employees, family, friends and community members – affected by breast cancer. As recipient of Komen’s Outstanding Volunteer Group Award, Union Pacific has been dedicated to the cause of eradicating breast cancer for more than a decade.
Since 2000, Union Pacific's LEAD (Lead, Educate, Achieve, Develop) women’s group has worked to promote the Susan G. Komen Nebraska Race for the Cure® by guiding employee volunteers to organize, plan and implement a registration drive, create promotional campaigns for the Race and motivate Union Pacific's 5,000 local Omaha-area employees. This dedication has inspired affiliate LEAD chapters through UP’s 23-state operating system to support local Komen chapters and demonstrates how Union Pacific employees throughout the nation have embraced Komen's promise on a personal level.

Because it is one of the newest, most reliable and most fuel-efficient locomotives in the Union Pacific fleet, the UP No. 7400 Pink Ribbon Locomotive likely will carry service-sensitive consists such as automotive and intermodal trains traveling from facilities in Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Marion, Ark., to West Coast facilities in Los Angeles, Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
A flowing, symbolic pink ribbon adorns each side of the locomotive, representing power on power: the strength and progress of the breast cancer awareness movement illustrated on the powerful Union Pacific No. 7400 locomotive.
