Train enthusiasts leaving Douglas traveling east also have an opportunity to see trains in action. Stop in the community of Lost Springs, located along Highway 18/20. From the community park, trains can be seen making their way down the triple tracks.
Those traveling west toward Casper are encouraged to stop in Glenrock and see the 1911 train bridge that serves as the entryway to the community park. Need a break from the car? Take a stroll down the community pathway, built along the former route of the CB&Q railroad.
