Exciting railfan news!

U.P. "Big Boy" #4006I am very excited today, because I have just heard rumor regarding Union Pacific Steam (I call it a rumor because it is sketchy information at best).  They say that a new engine has been added to their steam program, 4-8-8-4 #4014!  This type of engine, called (and rightly so) “Big Boys” were the largest steam engines in the world, designed to haul more than seventy loaded freight cars over the mountains.  I also chose my account name from a local “Big Boy”, currently on display at the National Museum of Transportation (pictured).
