The Union Pacific’s iconic E-9 locomotives will make a stop at Portland’s Union Station to celebrate the railroad’s 150th Anniversary. The locomotives, along with the railroad’s traveling exhibit, the “Promontory” museum car, will be stationed at Portland’s Union Station. The “Promontory” features several artifacts, including railroad construction tools and remnants from UP’s earliest days, as well as stereo cards from Union Pacific’s one-of-a-kind collection and a 65” touch screen highlighting many of the communities this unique car will be visiting in 2012. Union Pacific will also have a locomotive simulator at the event that will give the community an up-close look at how trains are operated. There will be free coloring books and more.
