Union Pacific has been a part of our World Famous "Pendleton Round Up" dating back to 1910, and Union Pacific's Foundation has made a difference for many years with their contributions to the Arts Center, the Historical Society, Pendleton Round Up Hall of Fame, the Oregon East Symphony, the Children's Museum, and many more. Pendleton has a small rail yard and a rail line that runs the full distance of the community. Pendleton's relationship with Union Pacific has been very good and Pendleton definitely is a "Train Town."
