Preserved Union Pacific 2-8-0 # 533. Rawlins Wyoming. 1984.

I took this photo during a June 1984 motorcoach vacation to Yellowstone National Park in northwest Wyoming.

On the return leg of the trip, We spent a night at a motel in the small town of Rawlins Wyoming USA.

Seen here approximately 2 city blocks from the motel, was retired Union Pacific Railroad 2-8-0 consolidation type steam locomotive # 533, on display at a local city park.

What a pleasant surprise.
