Way To Go!

You did it!  Thanks to your votes and your support, Missouri won Union Pacific's Great Excursion Adventure and their legendary steam locomotive will now travel to more than 60 stops in the state. The steam train brings out thousands of rail fans and kids of all ages to see a living piece of American history.

After participants voted more than 178,000 times in the final round, the winning route is the Little Rock Express. It edged the Tuscola Turn by 3,042 votes to win.

Look for the actual dates of the excursion in the coming weeks on UP's facebook page, the Missouri River Runner facebook page, or check back here. Thanks for routing the steam!
