marking their 150th anniversary. The event was held at the Amtrak station near downtown. You can't appreciate just how massive UP 844 is unless you actually see it for yourself.
Even Abraham Lincoln made an appearance at the festivities. His presence is historically accurate; 150 years ago Lincoln signed into law the Pacific Railroad Acts that would incorporate Union Pacific into existence.Anyway, I was impressed. Kudos to Union Pacific for keeping UP 844 up and running to remind us of what used to be.
