Wednesday in Wyoming -- November 9, 2016

Trains.  It's hard to drive very far in Wyoming without seeing one.  Though early trains carried passengers, now most of them are used for freight, hauling the state's coal and natural gas to markets in other parts of the country.

Even small towns like Centennial, with a population under 300, celebrate the influence that trains have had on Wyoming's economy.  This photo shows part of Centennial's museum and features both the town's historic depot and a train.
