TABLE ROCK, Wyo. – Union Pacific's main line tracks between Cheyenne, Wyo., and Ogden, Utah, are playing host this week for the return of Big Boy 4-8-8-4 No. 4014, but they're still a busy through route for freight trains headed between the West Coast and the Midwest. 

 

One Trains Magazine video team caught up with Big Boy about 20 miles west of Rawlins, Wyo., early Sunday, only to have their view blocked out by a double-stack intermodal train at Riner Road. The video team improved its score a bit later by navigating Sweetwater County's, dirt roads to capture outstanding videography near Table Rock.
