As some of you will already know, Union Pacific have been busy the last four years or so restoring "Big Boy" no. 4014 to working order. A cavalcade left their Steam shop at Cheyenne on Saturday to run to Ogden, Utah, where 4014 and 844 will be participating in the "Golden Spike celebrations marking 150 years since the completion of the first USA transcontinental railway.

They are now on their way from Cheyenne to Ogden and here is a clip of them at Point of Rocks yesterday

The engines are scheduled to be given a Rest Day tomorrow at Evanston, and do the remaining three or so hours to Ogden on Wednesday morning,

I should at least be in the right country to see them by then - leaving Heathrow for Chicago tomorrow afternoon and on to Salt Lake City (think of it as "Ogden Road" :) ) on Wednesday. It's one of the advantages of being retired ;)

Well I got here :)

Ogden this morning (Thursday 9th May):

Ogden UTA station at 0830 with many men of a "certain age" arriving, and their womenfolk in many cases

844 waiting for the star of the show:

4014 arriving after being stabled half a mile away out of sight of the crowds

4014 and 844 meet as the gathered throng watches:
