Take the train




A local steamhead has written in to seek help in winning the vote to have a special Union Pacific excursion train come to Little Rock.

The "Little Rock Express" is one of four potential routes that have been put to a vote on the website of Union Pacific's Great Excursion Adventure contest. The winning route will be graced by one of two steam-powered locomotives that serve as mechanical goodwill ambassadors for the company.

If the Little Rock Express route pulls out a win, the train will depart from Kansas City, then travel through St. Louis and Poplar Bluff before ending up in Little Rock. We're currently neck and neck with the next-highest vote-getter, The Tuscola Turn, through Iowa and Illinois. Voters are entered to win tickets for the excursion train. Voting ends January 17.
