UP 4014 Builder Plate
Author: donstrack

Did anyone notice if UP 4014 now has the correct builder plate?

Previously, I had this on my web page entry for UP 4014:

"UP 4014 currently carries builder plates reproduced from an original plate from UP 4001, with builder number 69572 and builder date September 1941. The original left side builder plate on 4014 was stolen the first night after it arrived in Pomona in January 1962. The right side plate was cracked with a missing corner piece. After a few years, a local R&LHS member offered his original plate from UP 4001 to serve as an original to have reproduction copies made, and it is these reproduction copies that are currently mounted on UP 4014."

They made new ones and are correct. There are pictures here somewhere.
