    If I could give this program 6, 7, or 8 stars instead of just 5, I would… SUPERB coverage from beginning to end! My family and I have watched this DVD several times over since purchasing it directly from Trains Magazine. All the events we missed are in this production. We were traveling a day or two behind 844 and 4014’s train when we made our trek out to Wyoming and Utah in May of 2019. It was quite a thrill to be in Ogden May 9th and 10th for the 150th Anniversary events, but it would have been nice to chase the train all the way from Cheyenne to Ogden. However, we DID get to participate in the chase from Ogden to Evanston on May 12th, and made our own video of the event! THANK YOU Trains Magazine for covering the triumphant return to life of #4014 so thoroughly! We feel as if we didn’t REALLY miss a thing!

    The king has returned to the rails and 2019 was the Year of the Big Boy. After almost 6 decades of the last run of the Big Boy, Big Boy 4014 has returned to steam to participate the 150 celebration of the first Transcontinental Railroad in 2019. Teamed up with never retire steam locomotive 844, the 4014 made an inaugural trip from Cheyenne to Ogden and return in a special train “The Great Race to Ogden”. Love the history of the Big Boy 4014 and other Big Boy locomotives.
