A Diamond In The Rough is about the effort to save the oldest Union
Pacific steam engine left in existence; known as the Union Pacific 737 later to be the Southern Pacific 216, as well as the historical cars behind her; now known as The History Train. The story tells the step-by-step acquisition of the train and its restoration. I hope it entertains and inspires you to preserve some part of our history; no matter how big or small it may be. Thank you for your interest.
