Union Pacific’s “Living Legend”
January 23, 2013 1 Comment
Union Pacific 844 is a 4-8-4 steam locomotive owned by Union Pacific Railroad. Built in 1944, it was the last steam locomotive delivered to Union Pacific and is the only steam locomotive never retired by a North American Class I railroad.
The weather on the morning I saw this beast on display was great, but the location was cramped and too small to show it off appropriately. I wish they had fired it up so we could have seen the steam rising from this Living Legend.
