Ute Train headed to Provo....This is BIG BOY

Posted By: Crafty Ute
Date: Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 11:18 am



Here's the Biggest Steam Locomotive in the World Flying Down the Rails

UP 4014 is one of only 25 Big Boys ever built, and is the only one running thanks to a years-long restoration effort by Union Pacific. Weighing over a million pounds, it was originally designed to haul freight over the Wasatch Mountains (themselves a section of the Rockies), and its approximately 6,300 horsepower could propel it up to 80 mph.

pangloss icon NEW: Do the Heber Creeper or the Durango & Silverton count? I have vague memories, most are now, of dropping my dad off at the train station & airport when the trains were steam and the airliners had propellers. But it might have been on TV or a movie. (nm)
