## About This Content
Anchored on the great railroad town of Kansas City, Union Pacific’s Heartland
Service Unit is perfectly named, stretching through America’s vibrant and busy
granger heartland. And now, extraordinary Union Pacific granger-country main
line railroading comes to Train Simulator with the Kansas City – Topeka route!
By tradition part of the First Subdivision of Union Pacific’s famous and
historic Kansas Division, Union Pacific’s 67-mile Kansas City-Topeka line is
today a key route amid UP’s sprawling system. UP’s Kansas City-Topeka line is
bustling with traffic, as typically some 60 trains a day hustle across the
route laden with tonnage including grain, coal, automobiles, aggregates, and
manufactured products. Lawrence, Kansas, 40 miles west of Kansas City, is an
important location along the route.
The Granger Heartland: Kansas City-Topeka route extends from Union Pacific’s
18th Street and Armourdale yards in Kansas City (Kansas) to Topeka, junction
site with three important Union Pacific lines that stretch on westward. In
addition to hosting expansive main line traffic, the route is home to multiple
and diverse lineside customers including skyscraper-tall grain elevators, auto
distribution facilities, and manufacturing companies.
For much of its distance between Kanas City and Topeka, the double-track
railroad traces the north bank of the Kansas River, curling through rolling
and scenic granger territory. Operating speeds on the line are typically in
the 60-mph range. As expected on such a critical and active route, Union
Pacific’s Kansas City-Topeka line witnesses a variety of modern motive power
and the Train Simulator route includes Union Pacific’s powerful Electro-Motive
SD70ACe and versatile GP40-2 along with a selection of eight types of Union
Pacific freight rolling stock.
The origins of the Union Pacific’s Kansas City- Topeka route date to the 1855
formation of the Leavenworth, Pawnee & Western Railroad, but the line’s
important grew in 1863 when it was designated the Union Pacific Eastern
Division to serve as a southern branch of the transcontinental railroad.
Tracklaying began that same year and reached Lawrence in 1866. Renamed the
Kansas Pacific, the route reached all the way to Denver, Colorado by 1870.
Today, in the state of Kansas alone, the Union Pacific operates more than
2,000 route miles of railroad and arguably none are more important, vibrant,
or captivating than the miles that stretch between Kansas City and Topeka! The
experiences and challenges of modern and ever-bustling big-time railroading in
America’s heartland await you in Train Simulator – with the Granger Heartland:
Kansas City – Topeka route!
