Join us on July 13 and 14th, 2012 from 10am – 2pm at Portland’s Union Station for historic train tours, events and activities celebrating the 150th birthday of Union Pacific. Wilfs is a proud partner of this incredible milestone.
150 Years ago President Abraham Lincoln signed the Pacific Railway Act of 1862, allowing Union Pacific to set forth on an ambitious journey. In 2012, Union Pacific celebrates the shared stories that have shaped our country since 1862. To mark the 150th anniversary, we invite you to explore how the nation’s largest railroad came to be and how UP continues to build America with innovation and tenacity, touching the lives of nearly every citizen. Learn more and share your train stories at the Union Pacific 150th Anniversary wesbite.
Trains on Display
The Streamliner E-9s and the Promontory museum car will be on display. “The Promontory” is a traveling museum that allows visitors to explore railroad history via a 65-inch touch video screen highlighting many of the communities the car will be visiting in 2012. The portable locomotive simulator will give the community an up-close look at how trains are operated.
