We went back to Union Station in Ogden, Utah and took a look at the trains and museum. It was good to go back and look at the trains again. This time my favorite was seeing the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Torch Rail Car. It is a well done exhibit of train engine and rail cars.

This was a ball! The grandkids took us to see the trains while in Ogden. It was super interesting and the gift shop was well stocked. You get to inspect actual Trains. No replicas folks😎 Must see if in Ogden Utah!

The locomotives outside are great and there is a fun exhibit where you can pretend to drive a train inside. There is a series of model trains that travel through the exhibits and tell the story of the wedding of the rains. It is pretty fun and free.

They have an all around impressive collection of railroad related items! The museum has items I have never seen at a railroad museum before. The story of the railroads of... More
