Big Boy 4014 Update
For more than half a century, Union Pacific’s Big Boy 4014 was on display in Pomona, CA. In 2013, Union Pacific began the process to move and restore it back into excursion service, which would make 4014 the ultimate rolling museum as it showcases UP in its finest era. But before that can happen, the massive 4-8-8-4 would have to be moved from its resting spot at the Rail Giants Train Museum in Southern California to Cheyenne, WY where UP bases its steam power.
Big Boy 4014 Update will show the tireless steam crew erecting the temporary track across the parking lot. Watch 4014 as it’s towed by a front-end loader under the watchful eye of the steam crew. Witness the moment when a UP diesel coupled onto the tender of 4014 to the delight of cheering crowds. Towed by modern diesel power, many great runbys were made as the train began its journey to Cheyenne.
