Union Pacific Big Boy: Rebirth of a legend
The world's largest steam locomotive returns to the rails
|Through the 1940s and 1950s, Union Pacific's 25 4-8-8-4 Big Boys symbolized powerful, big-time railroading in the wide-open American West. Now, Union Pacific is bringing one of these legendary locomotives, No. 4014, back to steam.|
No. 4014 has been on display at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds for 51 years, but it will leave soon to begin a multi-year restoration that will return it to steam.
