Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 7, 2016
Trains! You'll see them all across Wyoming and for a good reason: the railroad was responsible for the settlement of many of Wyoming's cities. Cheyenne, Laramie, Rawlins, and Rock Springs, to list a few, owe their existence to the Union Pacific and the development of the transcontinental railroad.
But the UP's east-west rails aren't the only train tracks in Wyoming. Others travel north-south, stopping at -- among other places -- Douglas.
If you're in the mood to learn more about trains, Douglas now houses the Railroad Interpretive Center where you can view and tour a variety of train cars.
