The Union Pacific’s historic Big Boy steam locomotive No. 4014 is touring the Union Pacific system throughout the entire year to celebrate the transcontinental railroad’s 150th anniversary!

Big Boy No. 4014 was delivered to Union Pacific in December 1941. The locomotive was retired in December 1961, having traveled 1,031,205 miles in its 20 years in service.
