Laramie, North Park and Pacific Railway
The Laramie, North Park and Pacific Railroad and Telegraph Company was a short lived railroad line in the U.S. state of Wyoming. In 1880, a group of Albany County businessmen proposed a rail line west from Laramie across the Medicine Bow Range. The railroad only made it to the Soda Lakes, 13.36 miles (21.50 km) southwest of Laramie, serving mining camps in the area for several years. The Union Pacific Railway soon gained control of the line. Most of the line was subsequently abandoned, but in 1900 successor Union Pacific Railroad bought the easternmost 1.63 miles (2.62 km).

Laramie Economic Development Corporation :: Train Locomotive Moves to Railroad Heritage Park
An Historic Move! Railroad Heritage Park Train Relocation Project In a joint project between the City of Laramie and the Laramie Railroad Depot Association, Wasatch Railroad Contractors of Cheyenne, five train pieces will be relocated from Laramie locations, and assemble them into a "snow train" in Railroad Heritage Park - in Depot Park - adjacent to 2nd Street and Sheridan Street Streets affected (no parking and traffic delays) during the move will include: Monday, February 7th: 5th Street and Canby Street to 7th Street and Canby Street, north an south side Canby Street 6th Street from Canby Street to Harney Street, east and west side of the street 3rd Street, west side of intersection of Grand Avenue and 3rd Street at lease 200 years south of west side of 3rd Street Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, February 7th - 8th - 9th: Park Avenue between 3rd Street and the railroad tracks, both sides of Park Avenue from 3rd Street to the railroad tracks 1st Street, both sides of 1st Street from Garfield Street to Park Avenue For more information about the move, please contact Mike Zook, Parks Manager (307) 721-5264 "It's a huge project, and really a GREAT photo-op and possibility for a feature." Click her for more information about the Railroad Heritage Park: http://www.laramiedepot.org/About/RailroadHeritagePark/tabid/72/Default.aspx For additional information about Railroad Heritage Park and/or interview opportunities, please contact Parks and Recreation Director Paul Harrison at the City of Laramie (307) 721-5269. Contact at the Laramie Depot is Larry Ostrich at (307) 742-7603. www.CityofLaramie.org =================== MORE INFORMATION Barring a white-out blizzard, on February 7, 8, and 9, 2011, four pieces of railroad equipment will be moved from various places around Laramie, WY, to Railroad Heritage Park located just south of the historic Laramie Railroad Depot. Wasatch Railroad Contractors, the firm that the City hired for this project, subcontracted with Black Hills Trucking, from Casper, WY, to handle the moves. Black Hills Trucking will leave Casper at 5 AM on Monday, February 7th, with three trucks and two cranes, arriving at the engine between 9 AM and 10 AM. The engine and tender are currently located at 6th Street and Canby Street in LaBonte Park in Laramie. Between 11 AM and noon, the cranes will move into position, one on each side of the engine, and lift it. Then a trailer will be backed under the engine and the engine will be lowered. The truck, trailer, and engine will move forward onto 6th Street and Park Avenue while the tender is placed on a second trailer. Between 1 PM and 2 PM the two trucks will head south on 6th Street for Railroad Heritage Park, escorted by the Laramie Police Department. The move is estimated to take approximately 45 minutes. About 3 PM the engine and tender will arrive at the Laramie Depot and unloading will begin a process that will take one or two hours. The trucks, trailers and cranes will then head for the snow plow and bunk car, currently located in Laramie’s West Side, just west of Cedar Street between University Avenue and Fremont Street. Tuesday morning, February 8th, the snow plow and bunk car will be loaded onto trailers and moved to Railroad Heritage Park. They will proceed north on Cedar Street, east across the Curtis Street viaduct, and then south on 3rd Street to the park. If all goes well the caboose will be moved that afternoon. Otherwise, the caboose will be moved on Wednesday, February 9th. Once assembled, the equipment will re-create a 1950's era snow train used to keep the rail lines open in the fierce Wyoming winters. It will be a tribute to the hard working men and women of Laramie and the West who braved the elements to keep the passenger and freight trains running. The train will not only serve an historical function, but it will also be "coherent", meaning that it could have existed in the real world, operating in exactly this assemblage. This is rare for static displays. It is seldom that one sees any piece of railroad equipment riding on a truck through city streets. This is an opportunity to see an entire train move, albeit spread over several days. The train consists of the following equipment: Wedge Snow Plow – Union Pacific snow plow 900015, now located in Laramie's West Side. It was built in the Union Pacific's Pocatello shops in 1953 and was converted from a steam engine tender. The original number was 015. It was featured on the cover of The Streamliner, Vol. 6, No. 3, in action blasting through a snow drift near Strasburg, CO in 1982. Steam Engine – Union Pacific 535, now located in LaBonte Park in Laramie. It was built by Baldwin in 1903. It is a 2-8-0 Consolidation and was originally part of the Oregon Short Line. It worked the Laramie yards and the Union Pacific Coalmont branch in the 1950's. Bunk car – Built by Ralston Steel Car Company for the Union Pacific in 1929. It began life as an A-50-12 automobile car, part of series 152001-152500, was converted to a box car in 1940, and then into a six-man bunk car in the late 1940's. An article about the Union Pacific's bunk cars, which includes a photo of a car similar to ours, appeared in The Streamliner, Vol. 16, No. 3. Caboose – Union Pacific 25232, built in 1951 with original number 3932. It is a class CA-5 caboose, one of a set of 100 such cars built by the Union Pacific in its Omaha shops. This was the first class of steel cabooses built in the Union Pacific shops. In the 1970's the caboose was upgraded with trucks that gave it a smoother ride. It served on the Maryville, KS branch until it was retired. The bunk car actually led to the creation of Railroad Heritage Park. Two years ago the car was scheduled to succumb to a salvage company's cutting torch. The effort to save it let to a whirlwind of activity which culminated in the park. Railroad Heritage Park is a joint project between the Laramie Railroad Depot Association and the City of Laramie. For more details on this park and the equipment to be moved, click here "About – Railroad Heritage Park": http://www.laramiedepot.org/About/RailroadHeritagePark/tabid/72/Default.aspx Hope you can be there to watch this once in a lifetime event!

"On The Origin And Definition Of The Geologic Term "Laramie"" by A. C. Veatch
INTRODUCTION Investigations of the United States Geological Survey during the summer of I906, covering the larger part of the Laramie exposures on the Laramie Plains, examined by the King and Hayden surveys, have revealed many new and important facts bearing on the Laramie problem. By detailed areal surveys it was found: (1) that the lignitiferous series, which in the Laramie Plains lies between the Montana below and the Fort Union above, and has a maximum thickness of about 12,500 feet, is divided about the middle by an unconformity; (2) that this unconformity is in the same stratigraphic plane and continuous with the unconformity which in the vicinity of Carbon and to the southeast separates all the Laramie beds studied by the Hayden and King parties from the underlying Cretaceous; (3) that the beds above the unconformity rest, often with great divergence of dip, on all the underlying beds down to and including the Dakota; (4) that the basal conglomerate, locally well developed at the horizon of the unconformity, while composed largely of materials derived from the underlying Cretaceous rocks, notably the Benton, contains pebbles and bowlders from the pre-Cambrian crystallines now exposed in the hearts of the surrounding ranges. This unconformity thus involves the total thickness of the Cretaceous portion of the beds below the unconformity, and probably the whole sedimentary series of this region, or over 20,000 feet of strata. The Laramie Plains section in brief is as follows: It may be said that in the areas examined by the Hayden and King parties, all of which were immediately along and south of the Union Pacific Railroad, the lower division is usually absent, the upper resting generally on one or another of the members of the Montana, but at one point extending over on to the Dakota. The large development of the division beneath the unconformity and above the Montana, corresponding to the "Lower Laramie" of literature, lies entirely north of the area they studied, and its existence was not known until the work of the past season. The three principal usages of the term "Laramie" today are shown in the recent textbook of geology by Chamberlin and Salisbury. Here "Laramie series" is applied to all the beds between the Montana and Fort Union. Upper Laramie and Lower Laramie or "Laramie proper" are applied respectively to the beds above and below the great unconformity, first shown by Cross to
