Experience the complete story of 844/8444, the longtime pride of the Union Pacific Railroad. Relive 44 years of action with the only steam locomotive never to be retired. Witness the famous FEF-3 class Northern, a high-steppin’ 4-8-4, in passenger and freight service. Enjoy decades of excursion runs. Thrill to 8444’s triumphant return from the World’s Fair in New Orleans. See the 1990s “new” 8444 in beautiful two-tone gray paint. An extraordinary story all Union Pacific, and steam, fans will want to see. UPDATE: This remastered program now has 10 minutes of additional footage from 844’s return to steam in 2016 after a long shopping. See her in Denver and Cheyenne and in between!
