Union Pacific Steam Schedule

We know you missed seeing our steam locomotives last year nearly as much as the UP Steam Team missed operating No. 844 and Big Boy No. 4014. We have great news, the Steam Team is busy planning an excursion for No. 4014, likely kicking off August.

I still find it odd they went with oil-firing.  You would think with all the coal they have access to out there in the west, they would've just gone with coal.

The reason for the conversion to oil is because coal is a fire hazard in the western climate.
