Union Pacific’s 844 and 4014

Tommy had read that the Union Pacific’s steam engines 844 and the Big Boy 4014 would make a run from Cheyenne, Way to Ogden, UT celebrating the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad. He really wanted to go but kept talking himself out of going. After some nudging, he agreed that the opportunity might not ever come again and we should go.

Our first day in Laramie we spent driving around looking for locations for viewing the train as it came through. We were totally amazed at how many people had come out to see the 844/4014 steaming through town.

While we were in Laramie Dennis and Ann were visiting from Council Bluffs. Perfect time to get grandparent pictures with Miss B.
