Step back to the late 1990s to experience Union Pacificís Marysville Subdivision. Here youíll find high density railroading at its finest. Union Pacific sends up to sixty trains a day across the Subís hilly terrain. This primarily single-tracked line spans the sparsely populated region between Kansas City and the junction with UPís mainline at Gibbon, Nebraska. The rails cut across a rolling landscape rich in scenic beauty, where trains work hard to conquer the uneven profile of the land.
Starting at Gibbon Junction, the incredibly active meeting point of the Marysville Sub and the Nebraska Division mainline, we follow the route east along the Nebraska prairie. A new bypass around Hastings speeds trains up and over a busy Burlington Northern line. Soon after crossing into Kansas, the line becomes double-tracked and carries trains swiftly into Marysville, the crew change location and the stopping point for Volume 1 in our tour.
Union Pacificís diesels put on a spectacular show, rushing train after train over the line. The railroadís newest motive power can be seen pulling heavy coal trains and speedy intermodal freights. The single-tracked portions of the route provide ample opportunity to witness numerous train meets. For big time, modern railroading, get set for nonstop action in Union Pacificís Marysville Subdivision Volume 1!
