(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?
