No. 4014 approaches the U.S. Route 30 overpass as it departs North Platte on Thursday morning.

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – Union Pacific Big Boy No. 4014 has departed North Platte a little after 10 a.m. on Thursday morning headed east for Grand Island. However, the train has lost its contingent of covered hoppers carried from Cheyenne, Wyo., earlier in the week.

The move comes after some confusion on Wednesday when UP announced a one-day early departure from North Platte to beat rising flood waters, only to later hold the locomotive in town "until further notice."
