Historic Steam Engine Visits Columbus

COLUMBUS – If you heard a horn this afternoon and thought a train was coming into your living room, don’t worry your not crazy. It was just the loud ringing of a 1940’s steam engine train.

The historic Union Pacific steam engine is making it’s way across the state of Nebraska and is heading through Schuyler, North Bend, and Fremont on it’s way to the College World Series.

The engine stopped in Columbus at roughly 2 p.m. on Monday, and officials presented Mayor Jim Bulkley with an honorary golden spike.

The steam engine left Columbus just after 2:35 p.m.
