Big Boy locomotive begins California farewell tour

16 hours ago

Spectators view the historic locomotive, Union Pacific Big Boy No. 4014 at Metrolink Station, Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, in Covina, Calif. The 600-ton Big Boy locomotive left the Pomona fairgrounds on its way to a Union Pacific rail yard in Colton, about 60 miles away, where it will be available for two weekends of public viewing before moving on to Cheyenne, Wyo., for restoration work. The goal is to eventually get Engine 4014 back on the rails, said Union Pacific spokesman Aaron Hunt. (AP Photo/Ringo H.W.

They hope to get 4014 finished in 2019, in time for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike.
