Right now the Union Pacific Railroad is having a contest to determine where a steam train will run this summer. They will pick the route based on a vote.
I am hoping they will choose the route that goes through Iowa. It is called the Tuscola Turn and starts in Boone, Iowa, and goes to Illinois.
The Tuscola Turn (Iowa / Illinois) Route was leading the voting but the Little Rock Express has taken the lead today (Thursday). The voting goes through next Monday, January 17.
Would you please take a moment and vote for the Tuscola Route? I think any and every vote will help. If you know of any one who could get the word out, I would appreciate it a lot.
Maybe you might know people who are on Facebook or have a mailing list through their work. Go to the Union Pacific Excursion website and you can vote! If the link is not working, here is the URL: http://www.upexcursion.com/
The first time you vote it takes a bit of time as you have to submit your email address, etc. but any time you vote after the first time it is just a click of the mouse.
The voting is so close EVERY VOTE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Thank you if you can help!
