Union Pacific's Last of the giant's



UP Locomotive number 2014 is on her way from Pomona California to Cheyenne Wyoming this week





By John M. Glionna

July 29, 2013, 1:23 p.m.

It has been called the last of the giant freight locomotives, a lumbering behemoth known as the “Big Boy 4014.” For half a century it has been on display at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, drawing railroad buffs from around the nation.

Now the mammoth steam engine is about to take another trip -- to the vast plains of rural Wyoming.

Union Pacific Railroad officials recently announced that the company has reached an agreement to acquire the locomotive from the RailGiants Train Museum at the fairgrounds. The railroad said it plans to move the engine to maintenance shops in Cheyenne, where crews will try to get it back to running condition.

“We’re really excited about the acquisition of the 2014 Big Boy,” railroad spokesman Aaron Hunt told the Los Angeles Times, adding that Union Pacific will post updates about the move, planned for the near future. Updates will be posted on Twitter @RailGiants.

My dad took me to the railroad museum in St. Louis when I was 15. Only vacation we ever took that wasn't on the river.
My great grandpa started on the Frisco and my cousins work for B & N.

My uncle put in over 40 years.
