The Big Boy started its excursion to Ogden, Utah today. Just search for "UP 4014" for many videos. Crowds lining the tracks for much of the route.

Ogden, Utah. Locomotive made it there without problems. Too many people with cell phone cameras.

Huge numbers of videos on line now.


Union Pacific was cautious. They had the Big Boy in a consist with a second steam locomotive and a modern Diesel, to be sure of getting to Ogden.  UP 4014 seems to be running well now. Early pictures show much smoke and steam. Once fully warmed up and at running speed, there's almost no smoke or excess steam. That's how it's supposed to be.
