Joe Offer BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive (52* d) RE: BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive 05 May 19


I live on old U.S. 40, the Lincoln Highway, right next to Interstate 80 and the Transcontinental Railroad. We're on the ridge between the Bear River and the North Fork American River - also the route of the Donner Party. The last time I followed the route all the way from Chicago to California was in November, 1973, when I first moved to California. We made the trip by automobile to Ogden, and the final part by train through a blizzard. I'm going to a family reunion in Detroit in July, and I'm thinking of returning by following the Transcontinental Railroad home, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the railroad. I'd like to stop in Omaha (Union Pacific RR Museum), Cheyenne (highest point of the UPRR), and Promontory Point, Utah. Anybody have tips about things to see along the way?
