All I can say about these pictures is that this was my train boys' version of heaven. Mama was able to get us into the Union Pacific Steam shop for a private tour. We had a blast! So many trains! and cabooses! and coaches! and the turn table! Mama! Mama! Mama! These pictures are not in order.
This was the snow blower train which made such an impression on Jimmy it is one of his favorite things to draw now... and our very kind and patient tour guide.
We also stopped to see the Merci Car for Wyoming. This was more interesting for Mama since she talks about it on her train rides. It was nice to see a restored one.
