Union Pacific Has Applied For PTC Waviers For Its Steam Engines

Article is not behind paywall (nice of them):

If Union Pacific is doing this, why can't organizations like the Friends of the 261?

When I saw this title I also wondered the same thing. Since nothing exists to work in a steam locomotive for PTC it's either waver or go out of business. I'm going to do some research and see if someone else has already done that and we don't know about it... yet.
