Longview will roll out the tracks to the city’s historical links to the railroad with the 40th Anniversary Amtrak Exhibit Train and various related activities April 27 to 29.
Amtrak is celebrating 40 years as America’s railroad with a special exhibit train that has toured the country, said Dietrich Johnson, Longview’s community services coordinator.
The free exhibit showcases rail travel over the decades, displaying memorabilia such as vintage advertising, menus and dinnerware, period uniforms and photographs.
