(This is a test post from Kyle’s laptop. I am trying to help Mary get this resolved.)
Here are a couple photos I took last week of the restored Union Pacific 4014 “Big Boy” Steam Engine.
While, I’m at it, I’ll give you a little information on the train:
Twenty-five Big Boys were built exclusively for Union Pacific Railroad, the first of which was delivered in 1941. The locomotives were 132 feet long and weighed 1.2 million pounds.
Big Boy No. 4014 was retired in 1961 after traveling 1,031,205 miles. The railroad obtained the locomotive from the RailGiants Train Museum in Pomona, California, in 2013 and sent it to Cheyenne, Wyoming, for restoration.
We’re you able to see it on it’s journey through the Midwest?
Wasn’t it glorious?! I didn’t see it, but so many pix of it. The locomotive was hinged so it could navigate all those Western mountains!
Why not an Eastern loop? Northern East and mid West return. A lot of fans wanted to see it here too.
Yep. Pics came through just fine.
Love these photos and would love to see the train! Is it in a museum now? Thanks for helping Mary! Jan in MA
Your post came through pictures and all. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful train.
Mary, I can see Ian’s photos and all the Ads are closeable.
I open in safari and am getting pictures yay!
Watched Big Boy as it was fired up this Spring on Wyoming site. Your post came through just fine; no ads.
The photos came through! Also were able to close many adds.
Great pictures and info
The photos came through on my end as well.
Thanks for information on the train.
My husband is a RR fan and we went to Wheatland and Mt Vernon Iowa to see the train and get pictures. What a great site to see. Thanks for the pictures.
The two train photos came through just fine, but no “clickable” ads.
Yep everything came through including an ad to close
The train photos came through just fine but I am still getting an alert that the site is “not secure” Red flagged again.
Thanks for the info and train photos!
Pics are great. Interesting post about this train.
It worked. Praise the Lord!

I got the pictures & closed 3 ads. Thank you for helping Mary!
Pictures and 7 ads.
Two fabulous train photos and history loaded along with quite a few ads that I closed. Looking good.
I just received the three posts from 10:48,10:54, 10:58 again,45 minutes later. 🙁
Yeah….we have pictures and text. You’re doing a great job!
We did see the train parked in Des Moines on Thursday and then when it went through Elkhart and Ames, Iowa. Got pictures and a video. Quite the sight as it’s traveling, seeing the smoke and steam. We saw one of the other Big Boys located at the Musuem of Transportation in St. Louis, and one on Omaha. They are monsters!
A few ads came through that I closed.
Got both text and pictures.😁
Got the corn picture and not the next picture. Train pictures came through just fine. This is progress. Thanks Mary. Peggy at Shell Lake, Sask. Canada. Keep up the good work.
Didn’t this train also come through Mason City? Honestly, my mind is so full of this blog problem I’m not sure but I think I heard about it on the news – so interesting! Thanks, Kyle!
6 ads, photos and story! You might be on your way to success. Loved the photos. My two uncles were train engineers, we used to travel by train and I loved it! Except when the window was ajar and we went through a tunnel…cough, gasp!
My husband went to see the “Big Boy” in West Chicago, IL. He is a model RAILROADER, so no MISSING that!
Wonderful pictures of the Big Boy Train! Thank you
Thank you Kyle for helping our dear friend. The pictures, text and ads came though just fine on my iPad.
Yes the pictures came thru. My family saw it traveling three Wisc.
Yes, my daughter and grandsons saw it as it traveled through Geneva, Illinois. They were impressed.
I come from a long line of railroad engineers. I always enjoy train pics and info about them. Thanks
This is very interesting! Pics and text came through just fine. Thank you for helping Mary; hoping and praying that a solution is on the horizon.
Hi Mary and Kyle, Yes, I have pictures and 5 ads to close. A couple ads didn’t have x’s, but when I clicked on them to open them, they closed soooo. My brother in law will love these pictures. Thank you, Kyle, for helping Mary with this problem:)
Great picture! Thanks
Great pictures of the Big Boy engine!
I also closed several ads.

Pictures and post from Kyle’s laptop came through. It’s good to have
you back, Mary!
Great train pictures & history. I only saw 1 ad!
What a really neat engine!!
We got to see it here in Des Moines. It was amazing. Nice to see your pictures again.
Pics and ads came thru for me. My husband and I saw Big Boy in Altoona WI. Very impressive when it came into the train yard. Also, my dear friend got to see it and visit with the train employees in Chicago. He is a retired Santa Fe engineer, who started as a fireman (for steam trains). He is 92 and was thrilled!
Hopefully things will straighten out soon (for the computer).
Yes saw the train
Great information. Happy Monday to you also.
Kyle..photos came thru. Thank you for the back store & helping Mary. Not only does Mary appreciate it but so do her loyal followers.
Kyle, my husband loves trains. I will show him your pics and story. Thank you for helping mary.

Yes! My husband and I went the weekend the Big Boy was in West Chicago, Illinois. My husband was having the best time! He also stopped (on his way to work) the morning the train left the yard to head to Iowa. He, and many others, watched from the bridge. A lot of fun!
Nice train pictures,thanks. Ten ads.
