For over 150 years Union Pacific’s transcontinental main line has played a key roll in the growth and prosperity of the nation. Since the driving of the golden spike at Promontory, Utah, the prairies of southern Wyoming have been alive with the humming of steel wheels.

7idea Productions takes you on a tour of Union Pacific’s Rawlins and Laramie Subdivisions between Green River and Laramie. This rarely visited portion of the Overland Route sees over fifty trains per day.  The double track main line follows the route of the Overland Stage crossing the Continental Divide three times through Wyoming’s Great Divide Basin.

We will begin at historic Green River and head east for 250 miles. Watch coal being delivered to the Jim Bridger Power Plant and its origin at the Black Butte Mine. Then we cross over the Continental Divide to Wamsutter, then again at Creston and Hadsell before arriving at Rawlins. Entering the Laramie Sub, we will continue east passing the refinery at Sinclair and around the northeast side of the Medicine Bow Mountains before arriving at Laramie. This is two-and-a-half hours of great main line action over a portion of UP’s original stomping grounds! Join us now as we head East to Laramie!

    In a word….. Excellent. Lots of variety of trains… grain, coal, auto racks, intermodals & general manifests. Very interesting to watch a coal delivery to a power plant. Fantastic scenery along the way. A good variety also of the locomotives including a heritage unit. Narration is well done explaining as the video goes along. Another great production by 7 idea

    “East To Laramie” is just of what we’ve come to expect from 7idea Productions: flawless, creative videography, informative narration, and train sounds that will make you want to turn the volume up a notch or two. The program showcases Union Pacific’s Rawlins and Laramie subdivisions as they cross Wyoming. It’s a great showcase of modern day railroading, featuring intermodal, mixed freights, grain, coal, tank and auto rack trains. Many of the locomotives could use a trip to the wash rack or the paint shop, but it’s a testament to a hard-working railroad that doesn’t stand still. Some of UP’s specially painted locomotives make appearances, including the handsome C&NW heritage locomotive, seen leading a couple of trains. Video and editing are well done, narration is informative without being intrusive, and the the sound of the trains (there’s an option for watching the program without narration) is crisp and powerful. And while the trains take center stage, the program does a great job of catching the “feel” of Wyoming, from its wide open spaces to its moody skies. It’s nearly two and a half hours long, but I found program went by faster than a priority stack train. Another five star production from 7idea.
