Union Pacific 150

A legendary steam engine will be passing through Nebraska this weekend in celebration of Union Pacific Railroad.

Turning 150 years old this year, the Union Pacific Railroad is commemorating the occasion by sending a large steam engine through Nebraska this weekend, stopping in Nebraska City Sunday morning. Nebraska City Tourism and Commerce's promotions and development coordinator Rose Ralstin says it's a neat opportunity for the community to get to witness this large pioneering machine.
