1903 Union Pacific Steam Engine and 1940s Union Pacific Caboose

The Baldwin Steam Engine No. 481 was built in 1903. It was used on the main branch of the Union Pacific in Kansas until 1955 when it was moved to Colombus, NE. It was retired in 1958 and had a home in Pioneer Park in Kearney until it was donated to Trails & Rails Museum in 1977.
The Union Pacific caboose was built in the early 1940s when Union Pacific changed from wooden to metal cars. It was taken out of use in 1979 and donated to Trails & Rails Museum by Union Pacific.
