Spring, Texas – The world’s largest steam train is still celebrating its 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad’s completion. The Union Pacific’s Big Boy No. 4014, the world’s only operating Big Boy locomotive, is scheduled to return to the railroad in a show “across the Southwest.”
Big Boy will be making its way through Arkansas, Arizona, California, Texas, and more. This will be its third and final tour of the Union Pacific system, celebrating the landmark anniversary and allowing fans across the Southwest the opportunity to experience a moment of history.
Each stop will be a brief whistle-stop in communities along the route. One of the stops will be Spring, Texas on Friday, November 8th at Elm St. Crossing. The colossal steam engine is scheduled to arrive at 11:15 a.m. CT and will depart at 11:30 a.m. CT. All stops are “viewing only” locations.
“Weighing in at 1.2 million pounds, the Big Boy makes a big impression in communities it visits, reminding us of bygone days and the important role the railroad continues to play in our global economy,” said Scott Moore, senior vice president – Corporate Relations and chief administrative officer. “Union Pacific wants to thank the countless rail fans and communities who have helped us celebrate this tremendous anniversary.”
