Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad’s Completion
Union Pacific’s historic Big Boy steam locomotive No. 4014 is touring the Union Pacific system throughout 2019 to commemorate the transcontinental railroad’s 150th anniversary.
The Big Boy’s return to the rails is the product of more than two years of meticulous restoration work by the Union Pacific Steam Team. No. 4014 is the world’s only operating Big Boy locomotive.
As long as everything stays on schedule the Big Boy 4014 is expected to arrive in Marshall TX on Nov 10th and depart Nov 12th.
