The Union Pacific Railroad is a company that honors its past. The carrier keeps a number of historic railcars and locomotives in operation, including a couple of steam locomotives that act as traveling "ambassadors" for the Omaha, Neb.-based carrier. But it also knows how to blend old technology with new, as evidenced by the release of UP Steam, a free app for fans of historic rail equipment.
The UP Steam app is available at Apple's App Store in iTunes for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Features include:
The app also includes an "About Union Pacific" section describing the company's operations.
