Laramie WY arrived 35 minutes late.

4014 and 844.jpg

Virtual Railfan at Youtube

Trains Magazine streams the ride partly live on their Facebook page.

The Union Pacific probably just the celebrations on May 09.

Here is a video of the test run. In the beginning, 4014 is united with its tender in the picture. He is currently running with the tender of 3985. - we send worldwide :wink:

I hope I will get once a chance to see the Big Boy in operation. I saw all but two machines around US, 4014 was also one of those I never saw... :-)
