Enjoy being the engineer of a GP-38 diesel as it makes its run on the train simulator and the real hands-on control stand. Discover the fascinating history of the Southern Pacific and Rock Island railroads along with their predecessors, and their development from El Paso, TX to Liberal, KS from the Civil War to their eventual combinations into todays Union Pacific Railroad. And learn about the people who were the ones whose endeavors created the railroads and built them into the industry that they are today.
