De enige loc die ik ken, die z'n eigen tunnel heeft. :ok: (ongeveer halverwege de loc, tussen de beide motorruimten in  :cool:)

Kan me trouwens voorstellen dat ze maar op één motor rijden, echt hoge treingewichten hoeft 'ie immers niet meer te trekken...

Union Pacific Steam Club Update No. 5 - Apr. 10, 2019

UP Steam
 

From the UP Steam Team: We've been working hard out here making good progress. For the first time in 60 years a UP 4000 class locomotive has fire in its firebox in Cheyenne...an oil fire.

A fire was successfully lit April 9 in the firebox of the UP 4014, the crew is excited to undergo additional testing of the modified "oil conversion" for the Big Boy 4014.

Details Announced about May 9 Celebration

Union Pacific will host a celebration marking the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad's completion Thursday, May 9, at 10:30 a.m. MDT. The ceremony will be held at Ogden Union Station a day ahead of Utah's celebration at Promontory Summit where the Golden Spike was originally tapped into place.

The May 9 ceremony will feature Living Legend No. 844 and Big Boy No. 4014. The two will meet, recreating the historic image taken at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869.

Following the steam meet, Union Pacific Chairman, President and CEO Lance Fritz and Utah Gov. Gary Herbert will be joined by Margaret Yee and Sandy Dodge to tap a ceremonial spike. Yee's ancestors were among thousands of Chinese immigrants who forged the transcontinental railroad for Central Pacific. Dodge is a descendent of Gen. Grenville Dodge, Civil War veteran and Union Pacific's chief engineer during construction.

 

May 9 and 10 Ceremonies to be Streamed Live via Facebook

Can't make it to Ogden or Promontory for the big events May 9 and 10? That's OK, we've got you covered.

Union Pacific will be streaming both ceremonies live via the UP Facebook page, located at http://www.facebook.com/unionpacific. If you haven't already "liked" our Facebook page, do it today. You'll be notified as soon as the cameras start rolling.

We'll be including schedules for the May 9 and 10 events in future Steam Club emails.

 

Limited Number of Tickets Available for 4014 and 844 Excursion

Here's a head's up on a very special steam excursion opportunity.

As you know, steam locomotives No. 844 and No. 4014 will be in Ogden for Union Pacific's 150th anniversary celebration commemorating the completion of the transcontinental railroad. The locomotives will begin traveling together back to the Cheyenne Steam Shop Sunday, May 12.

A limited number of tickets will be sold by Spike 150 for a ride that day onboard Union Pacific's Heritage Fleet cars being pulled by Nos. 844 and 4014 between Ogden, Utah and Evanston, Wyoming. The trip, which includes a two-hour behind-the-scenes tour at Ogden Union Station, is a fundraiser for the Union Pacific Railroad Museum and Spike 150, a Utah initiative to commemorate the 150th anniversary.

Go to www.spike150.org on April 12 for more details. Tickets go on sale Monday, April 15.

Thanks, and be safe!
