"Wheels of War"
from the Union Pacific Railroad Museum

The railroad and the military have been connected since the early days of railroading; from the Civil War to both World Wars. Union Pacific has been an integral part of national defense.

Wheels of War highlights the military’s need for a consistently dependable fast railroad, and the steps the railroad took to meet that demand.

The exhibit will be on display beginning October 15, 2021 through January 2, 2022.
