National Back Country Byway
—Rails of History —Welcome to the Transcontinental Railroad National Back Country Byway. The railroad grade you will be driving represents an epic achievement in American history, linking East to West in a new nation. Today, the landscape looks much the same as it did in 1869, but the rails, the towns, and even the lonely rail sidings are gone. Now you can only imagine the vision and effort of those who struggled to build the nation's first transcontinental railroad.
