Meet Uncle Pete!

Ever since I was little I have loved trains. My dad took my brother and I to see many different exhibits and museums of the railroad. We have seen Promontory Summit where the golden spike was driven, taken Amtrak, seen countless museums and events showcasing rail cars and locomotives. Even growing up we had our own Lionel train sets and would do set ups during Christmas time. Well the other night I was perusing YouTube and came across a vintage film titled “Meet Uncle Pete” which is a public relations video for Union Pacific. It is an interesting video that covers many different aspects of railroad operations during the 1960’s and several are still relevant today. I hope you enjoy the video and learn something new.
