Big Boy No. 4014 is finally back in action!! “Twenty-five Big Boys were built exclusively for Union Pacific Railroad, the first of which was delivered in 1941. The locomotives were 132 feet long and weighed 1.2 million pounds. Because of their great length, the frames of the Big Boys were "hinged," or articulated, to allow them to negotiate curves. They had a 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, which meant they had four wheels on the leading set of "pilot" wheels which guided the engine, eight drivers, another set of eight drivers, and four wheels following which supported the rear of the locomotive. The massive engines normally operated between Ogden, Utah, and Cheyenne, Wyo. There are seven Big Boys on public display in various cities around the country. They can be found in St. Louis, Missouri; Dallas, Texas; Omaha, Nebraska; Denver, Colorado; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Cheyenne, Wyoming. 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. Union Pacific reacquired No. 4014 from the RailGiants Museum in Pomona, California, in 2013, and relocated it back to Cheyenne to begin a multi-year restoration process. Union Pacific’s historic Big Boy steam locomotive No. 4014 is touring the Union Pacific system throughout 2019 to commemorate the transcontinental railroad's 150th anniversary. The Big Boy’s return to the rails is the product of more than two years of meticulous restoration work by the Union Pacific Steam Team. No. 4014 is the world's only operating Big Boy locomotive”.

"Heavy lifting" © Richard Dennis Daugherty Photography A closeup of the coal tender on the Union Pacific "Big Boy" 4-8-8-4 articulated steam locomotive number 4014 while it was temporarily stationed here at the UP yard in Colton, California. No. 4014 was the 15th of 25 “big boy” locomotives to be built by the Union Pacific, and was in service from 1941 to 1961. When this photo was taken, it had just come from its 52-year home at the RailGiants Museum on the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, California. At the Colton yard, it underwent preparations to be transported on the high rail to the main UP facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where it continues to undergo a complete restoration and upgrade. It is hoped that No. 4014 will be ready to travel under its own power (fueled this time by oil instead of coal ) to Ogden, Utah in time for the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad and to help celebrate the ceremonial Driving of the Golden Spike on May 10th, 2019. f/4.5, 1/100 sec., ISO 100 #articulatedsteamlocomotive #bigboy #bigboy4_8_8_4 #bigboyno4014 #bigboynumber4014 #blackandwhitephotography #coalfiredlocomotive #heavylifting #historicpreservation #history #locomotivepreservation #locomotives #monochromephotography #railroad #railroadhistory #railroadmuseum #railroadpreservation #steamlocomotive #unionpacific #unionpacificlocomotive #unionpacificrailroad
