A game for train lovers across America!
More than 140 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Pacific Railroad Act. With this historic stroke of a pen, the stage was set for Union Pacific to open the American West to settlers and, in the process, connect a continent. The transcontinental route heralded the Industrial Revolution and modernized transportation, turning the grueling, six-month, $1,000 journey from New York to San Francisco into a week long trip costing a mere $70. It took an army of 20,000 men, working 12 to 16 hours a day, seven days a week, for six years, to connect America east to west by rail. It was a remarkable feat, as the system was built primarily by hand. With the driving of the Golden Spike on May 10, 1869, the route was complete, and a vast, largely unpopulated region was poised for growth. Today, the 50,000 men and women of Union Pacific still connect America's communities, transporting the raw materials and finished goods that keep our economy, and our country, moving. For 2 - 6 players, ages 8 and up. Tokens include: Railroad crossing signal; Engineer's cap, Golden Spike, Caboose, Locomotive, and a Lantern.
