City Park Historic Displays After the Union Pacific Railroad converted to diesel power in the early 1950s, Marysville, a crew-change point, asked for and received the great old steam locomotive on display in City Park, a Baldwin Consolidation 2-8-0, built in 1901 for UP, later used for short-line freight hauls.

Nearby are the Beattie depot (circa 1870) and the former Bommer School House. The sod house was created by the Marysville Kiwanis Club to depict life in its earliest days in this community.
