I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, went to Laramie, Wyoming. Laramie was founded in 1868 when the Union Pacific Railroad came to town. This sign tells about early Laramie.
We will talk about the women of Laramie on a later day. Since the Union Pacific was a huge influence in the founding of Laramie, let’s talk about the railroad. This is the old train station.
We liked the luggage cart here. There are no passenger trains coming to this station now, so the train station is now a museum. This sign is reminiscent of the past.
We saw the engine and some cars from an old train.
The plow on the front of the engine looks like it could clear the train track in any weather.
There are many train tracks. This bridge allows pedestrians to cross all these tracks.
We ducks are ready to cross the bridge, maybe.
It was too big for us, so we were carried. Thanks mom. This is really a long bridge.
We spend some time in Laramie and thought it was a nice town. The University of Wyoming is in Laramie, also. We liked Laramie and hope you will visit and enjoy this city also. We are happy the Union Pacific Railroad came here to start the city of Laramie.
