Day55 Union Pacific

Union Pacific

Union Pacific

There is a lot of history in the city of Riverside.

Though time has changed the city’s identity, it was originally known as the city of firsts: First palm tree lined street (set mood for California), the first trolley cars, Naval orange trees, and so on).

Though I imagine that this old Union Pacific train also has some history behind it. All that I could find was that the train was donated to the city in July, 1954.

As a kid, the train was open to the public.
From front to back, top to bottom kids (and adult kids) would scour every inch of the beast.

These days, this train has gone the way of the old playgrounds with metal slides, and rusted joints.
