The Western Pacific Railroad was not the largest of the Western Class-One railroads.  It wasn't formed until 1906, with completion in 1909.  However, operating in the shadow of giants like the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe and the Union Pacific, the relatively young WP had to work that much harder to survive.  Thanks to the tenacious spirit and dedication of its employees, the WP rolled on in the face of occasional adversity with a spirit, humor, and culture that made them a legendary figure in the annals of railroading.  Come celebrate with us at our annual WP Historical Conventions.  These conventions feature clinics and presentations on models, prototype equipment, lines and structures as well as the people that made the WP famous.  A large banquet with guest speaker rounds out the weekends festivities on Saturday evening.
