The history of the Union Pacific Railroad Company is rich and integral to the settlement of the West. Founded in 1862 under a federal land grant, UP was the original transcontinental railroad, joined with a golden spike at Promontory Point, Utah. It's the railroad that famously hunted down Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid for repeatedly harrying its trains.
