I had to take multiple steps pacing backward in order to capture all of UP 4014 in a single frame! It will certainly be amazing to see this 4-8-8-4 running under its own steam after more than fifty years of sitting idle. It is currently scheduled to become active again in 2017. Unfortunately, at the time of this photo, UP actually has no steam locomotives in operable service. Pretty major damage was found inside the boiler of UP 844 and UP 3985 has been sidelined since 2011 as it is in need of rebuild attention too, apparently. 2014 may be the first year since Union Pacific's inception nearly 150 years ago that not a single UP steam locomotive will run!
