If you are going to drive, the view of the locomotives on the bluff to the north of I-80 crossing the bridge into Omaha is nothing short of spectacular.  John in Lansing, ILL

Must agree as we past that point this summer. Have no idea how they got the engines up on that bluff. There is also a big boy engine in a public park in Cheyenne Wyoming, the location not far from the Union Pacific shops where they are close to finishing restoration of  the big boy engine that will run for the event. If you have seen one of those engines up close they are absolutely massive. Tickets to ride UP steam train excursion trips are usually sold by lottery and are quite expensive.
