Rocky Mountain Express

Rocky Mountain Express is steaming back to Cincinnati Museum Center.  Re-ignite the fires of the Age of Steam through the restoration of 2816 – the “Empress” – and and ride along with this great engine across some of the most demanding and breathtaking railroad terrain on Earth. As this modern-day steam adventure unfolds, so does the dramatic 19th century story of the rails on which they ride.

Rocky Mountain Express focuses on one of the most ambitious railway ventures; the building of a transcontinental link through the Canadian Rockies in the 1880’s – a project that drew heavily on American ingenuity and on labor from around the world.  It was an undertaking so immense it drove its builders and a tiny young nation to the edge of ruin.

Reconnect the spirit of the steam age and discover not only the drama behind the creation of the railway but also a potent technological secret aboard the Rocky Mountain Express.
