One of the most viewed, recommended and relevant UP Big Boy train videos on Youtube! Union Pacific Big Boy 4014; the world's largest, heaviest and most powerful steam locomotive, is now fully restored to operation! This was the last portion of the return trip to Cheyenne after the 150th Anniversary Celebration, and The Great Race To Ogden, UT. UP 4014 and 844 work hard up Sherman Hill, and just listen to that sound!
This location was Tie Siding, WY!
It was said for years that this was impossible. It's too big, too impractical, too expensive, too heavy, etc. Now we have our answer; it IS possible!
One question remains; Can the 4014 dethrone the Flying Scotsman in popularity? Only time will tell. :)
