Union Pacific 4014 has returned to live steam and the mainline… after 60 years without being able to turn wheel on rail under its own power! UP brought her back to steam to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike
This DVD features exclusive historical footage, brand new (May 2019) footage and footage from 4014’s trip from the RailGiants site in California to Cheyenne to be rebuilt by the UP steam shop crew.
We’ll see 4014 at all the hot spots, including Echo Canyon and the Wasatch grade.
We’ll hear from people who were there.
We’ll briefly visit Promontory and see (and hear!) the two replica steam locomotives built for the 100th anniversary Golden Spike celebration!
There’s only one operating, narrow gauge, wood-burning 4-4-0 in the United States today
The Eureka and Palisade Number 4. Built by Baldwin in 1875,
this one hundred twenty-one year old steam locomotive has been perfectly
restored to its original splendor, complete with gleaming brass fittings,
ornate decorations, gold filigree striping, and polished oak cab.
