Hi Gang, I'll be riding the Union Pacific #844 Steam locomotive "Troop Train" to the 150th reenactment of the battle of Shiloh (Tenneesse) , departing from Union Station next tuesday, March 27. If you want to see a cool old steam locomotive with old passenger cars, with a bunch of civil war soldiers and cannons on it, come on down to Union Station next tuesday morning! Train will then make a media stop in Jeff City and St. Louis, which you could catch it there if you want. Below is a link with the schedule, and further down another link that tells about the train etc. Larry
This link points to the Shiloh Limited’s Schedule. I know that a lot of folks along the route will be thrilled to know exactly when / where the Whistle Stops are going to occur and how / when the can view this historic event.Regards,John BurgherRazorback Flying ArtilleryTerry’s Texas Rangers.
