This year’s Railroad Days includes a once in a lifetime chance to see railroad innovation up close. Imagine standing next to a vintage  E9 streamliner locomotive parked nose to nose with one of today’s models. A marvel of innovation in the 1950s-60s for its aerodynamic shape, the E9 is an antique compared to the locomotives used by Union Pacific today, These modern diesels feature onboard microprocessors to control various systems for improved tractive effort, better fuel efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions.

This year’s Railroad Days brings a special opportunity to see the two engines up close, to take photos and to have a complimentary digital photo for you to share with family and friends! Kids at heart can also see a large Garden Gauge model train on display exclusively for Railroad Days. Then create and take home your own innovative artwork of a thumbprint train!
