Tourists traveled to Yellowstone National Park on Union Pacific passenger trains for more than 45 years. Along the way they traveled through Island Park, a unique geographical region located along the Yellowstone Branch in eastern Idaho. From the area’s livestock and lumber industry, to Railroad Ranch and its affiliation with the Harriman family, to the “Spring Campaign” snowplow trains, the Yellowstone Branch played a major role in the region’s history. Although the northern half of the branch line was later abandoned, its route through Island Park is now a scenic year-around recreational trail.
