To participate in the contest, hopeful train admirers can visit, where they can enter their hometown and attempt to bring a historic train to the Columbia Basin.

Five individuals who log the most contest points will win two tickets each to join the excursion, stay in a hotel and fly to an event location.

Depending on train availability and route possibilities, Union Pacific will start to plan the Great Excursion Adventure starting Dec. 7.
