Union Pacific Railroad

January 1866

UPRR Crew -

Now that we're really ready to lay track, we have a problem. How smart is your team? We can begin to move if your crew can figure out the problem we have and then find a solution. 

Take your crew to Nebraska, look around, and contact me when you find what is missing in Nebraska that we desperately need to build our railroad.1
