It is simply amazing that UP takes the time and money to keep steam running in 2018. UP 844 is a Northern-type 8-4-8 locomotive that was built by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) in December 1944 as the last steam engine delivered to UP. It ran in revenue service until 1959. In 1960, it was saved from scrapping, to be preserved. Soon after, it started running in excursion service and has now running much larger (and far more miles) in excursion service than it did in revenue service in the 1940s and 1950s!
